Hi Bill,
I have been looking through my files on Hypselodoris jacksoni for feeding records. Here is the second lot. I hope they help.

Locality: Flat rock, Point lookout, Nth Stradbroke Island, Queensland, Australia. Upper photos:  29th January 2007, Depth 12mts. Lower photo: 30th December 2006, Depth 12 mts. Photographer: Bruce Wilkie. 

Many thanks,
Bruce Wilkie.

Thanks Bruce,
The sponge in the upper photos is Euryspongia. The way the colony is almost totally covered in overgrowing plants seems to be a fairly usual occurrence for this species.

In the lower photo the buccal bulb is partially everted but I am unable to identify the sponge material in the lower photo.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
