Concerning your request for feeding information on Chromodoris aureomarginata: As it happens, I did find C. aureomarginata a few weeks ago on a dive at the Poor Knights. This is the first time I've found this slug at the Knights. The only other occasion I've seen it was in Fiordland.
The attached photos may give some clues as to what the slug feeds on. From memory, it was on the move while I was photographing it.
Location: Bird Rock, Poor Knights Islands, New Zealand. Depth: 12 m. 18 March 2007. Estimated length:15 mm. Photographer: Ian Skipworth

Thanks for the photo. I'm afraid I can't squeeze any feeding info from it - even before cropping the background - but its nice to get another photo of this endemic New Zealander.
