Re: Aeolidia papillosa feeding

I am in need of some help. I am a undergraduate marine biologist at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England. In our final year we have to complete an honours project. I am hoping to base mine on Aeolidia papillosa. However,I am having great difficulties in finding any. I am in need of approximatly 20 juvenile individuals within the next few weeks!

Please can anyone help. There is a slight problem in that I have a very restricted budget!
Thank you,
Helen Marshall

Dear Helen,
'Common' nudibranchs can be a real pain at times - never there when you want them. Thompson & Brown (1984) say they breed from January to June and spend the first few months living sublittorally. It may be worthwhile getting in touch with Andy Horton, (British Marine Life Study Society), email: or Jim Anderson, (Scottish Nudbranch Site), email:

Bill Rudman.
