Concerning message #15543:
Thank you very much for the prompt reply and invaluable information regarding the "Aglajid eating a benthic ctenophore". As you said in your reply, finding information about benthic ctenophores on the web is rather difficult. So here are a few more photos for your files of two species found on soft corals here in East Timor.
Locality: East Timor, Banda Sea. Depth: 8M & 16M. Length: 2mm - 25 mm, December 2005. sandy slope. Photographer: Brian Francisco
Notice in the upper right side of the second photo there appears to be a smaller ctenophore individual atop the larger.

I wish I could reply to all messages as promptly. They are certainly fascinating animals, and as we can see in your photos, some, like nudibranchs, have become the masters of disguise.
