Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Up to 7 cm . One of the most common aeolids found, this species has many clusters of cerata on each side. Body colour can be pale to dark purple, although brown and green specimens are not uncommon. The fat rhinophores and very long oral tentacles are banded with violet and white. Brown and green pigments are due to the presence of symbiotic zooaxanthellae which continue to photosynthesise. Nematocysts are also present in the tips of the cerata and these, together with the zooaxanthellae, are presumed to be derived from coelenterate prey. Habitat: diverse, among shallow coral reefs. Distribution: Indo-Pacific. N.B. can inflict a painful sting to humans. [details]
