My friend Britt and I (Kirsty)are doing a university research assessment on the Godiva quadricolor at Griffith University on the Gold Coast [Queensland, Australia]. Our focus is on the organism's biology and also its ecological and socio/economic implications. Any information you are able to provide us with would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Britt and Kirsty

Dear Britt and Kirsty,
I am not quite sure why you have chosen, or been given, Godiva quadricolor, as a study animal. It is known from South Africa and Willan (1987) has reported it from Western Australia. I know of no records from Queensland. Like most opisthobranchs, we know little about its biology and natural history. As to its 'socio/economic implications', I am not too sure what you mean by that, but I can confidently say we don't know anything about them. I guess you have had a look at the species' Fact Sheet and other messages on this page. I don't know of any other references on the species. For more general information on aeolid biology have a look at the General Topics Index.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
