Husbandry

Dendrodoris coronata Kay & Young, 1969

The body colour is cream to dusky pink. On the mantle there are variable brown and opaque white blotches. The notum has low tubercles and a line of enlarged tubercles.

"coronata " refers to the `crown-like' band of tubercles in front of the gills. This nudibranch has a remarkable resemblance to a small living cowry snail (Cypraeidae).

Dendrodoris coronata feeds exclusively on the sponge Halichondria dura (its colour may vary depending on whether or not it has fed recently).
