Dear Eddie,
'Please help asap' requests usually suggest you've left an assignment to the last minute. Let's hope you make it - but I'm afraid I can't drop everything to meet your deadline.

Most of the species you mention are in the Forum so go to the relevant page and look at the attached messages for the information you are after.

A good source of information on nudibranch diets is Gary McDonald & James Nybakken's A List of the Worldwide Food Habits of Nudibranchs.

best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
