Ercolania boodleae is a common sacoglossan species in Peter the Great Bay (Russia, Sea of Japan) (Minichev, 1976). Alexander Martynov (1997) listed this species for the intertidal zone of the South Sakhalin (Sea of Okhotsk). We found E. boodleae on the different green algae (Ulva, Cladophora, Chaetomorpha etc.).

Thanks Alexei & Alexander,
It is good to get additional information on these species we previously only knew from Japan.
