Concerning message #15831:
We found this one last year in Lembeh-Strait : we think it is the same animal as in Brian Francisco photos. We found it on a coral reef but we don't know if our pictures give you more information of its feeding habit.
Locality: Coral Garden, 15 m, North Sulawesi , Indonesia, Indian Ocean, South China sea, 08 October 2005, Coral. Length: 5 mm. Photographer: Francis & Pirjo Pellet,

Dear Francis & Pirjo,
Yes this is Okenia brunneomaculata. I'm afraid it doesn't tell us any more about its feeding, but at this stage in our knowledge of the species, every new record is useful. For example, the lower left photo shows the lamellae on the rhinophores very well.
