Here are a few more photos of Trapania dalva for your archive. We encountered many of them on yellow sponges during a night dive.

It's nice to get another record of this small dorid. Species of Trapania are usually found on sponges, but we now know that their food is not the sponges, but small colonial animals called entoprocts which live in association with the sponges. I suspect the small translucent greyish objects in the front of the photo alongside are the small stalked entoprocts this animal eats.
