The attached photo of Oxynoe viridis on Caulerpa cactoides is from Spencer Gulf, South Australia, just off Port Pirie, but I, and Karen Gowlett-Holmes, have also seen it elsewhere in South Australia, mostly on C. cactoides on which it seems well camouflaged.

This is certainly a darker green than usual for this widespread species but may reflect the colour of the Caulerpa it feeds on. I am not sure where the skin pigment comes from in these sacoglossan species which do not retain plastids from their food. Another of the many mysteries we still need to investigate.
