Concerning message #8190:

Hi Bill,
In going through some images from last spring, I found some of Polycera tricolor apparently feeding on the lophophores of some bryozoan that is pretty much buried in deritus. There were a number of them directly under the dock in less than 3 metres. The caprellid shrimp you can see sitting on the bryozoan did survive, by the way.

Locality: Barkley Sound, 9 feet, British Columbia, Canada, Pacific, 18 May 2008, Rock reef. Length: 20 mm. Photographer: Marli Wakeling.
