Just wondering if anyone could send me information or post a reply concerning what types of compounds are known to be active in the colouration of nudibranch mantles. I know that symbiosis with dinoflagellates is one of the sources of the colouration, but is it for all the colours, or are there carotenoids and others which are involved?

I gave a very brief comment some time ago to a similar question. If anyone can send a more detailed reply to the Forum it would be a useful addition
