I photographed these Phyllidiopsis phiphiensis in the Mergui Archipelago, Andaman Sea, Myanmar. The upper image was shot at Western Rocky on Feb. 25, 2003 at about 10 meters. It appears to be feeding on a red sponge. It was 16 mm long. The slug in the lower image, also on
a red sponge, was shot at Three Islets on Feb. 27, 2003 at about 10 meters. It was 14 mm long. I also photographed the four-striped Phyllidiopsis striata in this area.

Dear Mary Jane,
Thanks for another interesting find. Brunckhorst (1993) reports this species feeding on a semitransparent white sponge of the genus Gellius.
