Thanks for the photo. What are species of Trapania doing on sponges? One wish I have for the new year is that someone shows me conclusive evidence that they feed on sponges, or if not some evidence of what they do feed on. For that matter, the same hold true for species of Siphopteron and other gastropterids.
