Concerning your question 'It would be interesting to know the name of the Caulerpa that Volvatella ayakii is on'.
The name is Caulerpa ambigua(okamurae). In Hachijo Island, there are other kinds of Caulerpa but this Volvatella lives only on C. ambigua. There are at least 5 different species of sacoglossan that live on C.ambigua, sometimes a number of species are found on the same plant.
