Pinufius rebus and coral-feeding

October 7, 1999
From: Bill Rudman

I have prepared some pages on the incredibly cryptic coral-feeding nudibranch Pinufius rebus, and some pages on general aspects of coral-feeding, using four species that feed on Porites as examples. They are listed below:
•*Coral feeding - radular adaptations
•*Coral feeding - defensive adaptations
•*Coral feeding - utilising different parts of the coral
Cuthona poritophages
•*Pinufius rebus - zooxanthellae symbiosis
•*Pinufius rebus
Phestilla lugubris
Phestilla minor
Solar-powered Sea Slugs
Zooxanthellae Symbiosis - references

* = new pages
