Sacoglossans on Caulerpa

January 25, 2001
From: Jeff Wright

I was wondering if anyone knew the sacoglossan species associated with Caulerpa spp. in south-east Australia, particularly those on C. filiformis and C. scalpelliformis?

Dear Jeff,
I don't know if there is an actual published list with this information but most shelled sacoglossans feed on speces of Caulerpa. perhaps Kathe Jensen could help. Have a look at Mollusca - The Southern Synthesis, which has information on the known foods of most Australian sacoglossans. If your university library doesn't have a copy, it should.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
