Husbandry

Marionia levis Eliot, 1904

Marionia species are perfect camouflaged with many bushy gills of the body.

Marionia levis is found living in association with, and feeding on, the encrusting soft coral Rhytisma fulvum. The nudibranch is well-camouflaged when on the surface of its prey as it is similar in colour, and the gill clusters resemble the polyps of the soft coral.

Synonymised names:
Marioniopsis fulvicola Avila, Kelman, Kashman & Benahayu, 1999
