I have an essay titled 'Why do some Marine flatworms and sea-slugs share the same bright colour patterns?' and I was wondering if you had some information.
Brilliant if you have and thanks.
Have a look at the following two pages - Defensive colouration and Mimicry. If you read the messages and my comments you will should find the information you require. For the flatworm's point of view have a look at Wolfgang Seifarth's Marine Flatworms of the World at http://www.rzuser.uni-heidelberg.de/~bu6/index.html.
