My name is Chiara Caligara and I'm a graduate student of the University of Nice, France. I'm doing a research project about the predators of sea anemones. Do you have a list of the different species of nudibranchs feeding on sea anemones?

Aeolid nudibranchs of the Family Aeolidiidae are all specialist feeders on sea anemones and their close relatives the zoanthids. Here is a list of the species on the Forum. Check through them for information on feeding.
There is also Gary McDonald & James Nybakken's List of the Worldwide Food Habits of Nudibranchs at http://www2.ucsc.edu/people/mcduck/nudifood.htm. This is an excellent compilation of the published food data for nudibranchs. However it is organised with nudibranch workers in mind so to find out which 'food' items are eaten, you would need to search through the whole list. The food items are only identified to species so you would need to be pretty familiar with sea anemone species names to extract sea anemones from the list.
