Thanks for this find. I am pretty sure it shows this animal feeding on the light blue sponge which looks to be a Dysidea. It seems to be the same sponge that a specimen of C. strigata is feeding on in an earlier message [#14122]. Species of Chromodoris don't usually feed on dysideids, but this is one of a number of records we have on the Forum of C. strigata and C. cf strigata apparently breaking the rules.
