We're at McGill University [Montreal, Canada] under Prof. Dhindsa. How does one obtain this organism? (or similar ones?) We've been looking all over but without a proper snail research background we're stumped. Can you give us some hinters?

By chance a week ago I reviewed Sherman Bleakney's book Sea Slugs of Atlantic Canada... As sacoglossans are one of his special interests, there is an interesting few pages on the problems of doing research on the natural history of Elysia chlorotica because its appearances are so unpredictable. Sometimes you'll find huge aggregations of large animals and then they are gone for years, only to be found somewhere nearby. If your library hasn't a copy, it should, but if you can't convince them to buy one, for $15 you could buy yourself an interesting book which, amongst much more, will give you information on E. chlorotica and a number of other sacoglossans, some of which also have chloroplast symbioses.
I'm afraid the difficulty in getting a predictable and reliable supply of animals for research is a problem with many sea slugs, even some we think of as very common. Good luck with your search.
