Chromodoris bullocki - Do you have any information on this species?
firstname.lastname@example.orgHannahs, J., 1999 (May 6) Hypselodoris bullocki. [Message in] Sea Slug Forum. Australian Museum, Sydney. Available from http://www.seaslugforum.net/find/824
As you can see from the photos I have put at the Top of the Page, this species is either quite variable in colour or else there are a number of very closely related species which we have yet to sort out.
From anatomical studies this species is not a species of Chromodoris. It is usually considered a Hypselodoris but it has quite a few similarities to the genus Risbecia, so even its name isn't certain.
I'm afraid we don't know much about its biology either, other than it is a sponge feeder. I have photographed it feeding on an unidentified species of Dysidea, but that's about all I know about it. If anyone has more information and/or photos on any aspect of its biology, colour variation etc., I will be happy to add them to this page.
If you have any specific point you would like me to address Jodi, let me know and I will see what I can do.
