I have been meaning to send these photos to you for some time to add to your list of feeding preferences for different species. I'm afraid I'm not able to identify the species of sponges but hope you or one of the sponge fundis might be able to shed some light.
This one is of a Chromodoris africana I photographed off Tany Kely, NW Madagascar. Not a particularly good shot as the opistho was tucked away in a very tight / awkward spot on the reef.
Locality: 'Gorgonian Valley', Tany Kely, NW Madagascar, Indian Ocean. Depth: 38 ft. Length: 40 mm. 25 January 2002. Steep drop-off around small island, varied benthic life. Photographer: Lindsay Warren
Many thanks as ever for all your work on the Forum!
All the best

It's a while since I have heard 'fundi' - the Swahili word for expert. It brings back memories of 6 years working in Tanzania. Thanks for this photo. About a month ago I decided to stop adding new records to the manuscript I have in the final stages, but I am making an exception for this observation as it fits into a nice pattern. I am 99% sure of the identity of the sponge but will check with my sponge fundi. This is the first record we have of C. africana feeding so its a very pleasing addition.
