Comment from Richard Willan on photo #1140
Species of Trapania typically congregate together like this to feed on kapmtozoans that grow over encrusting sponges. The animals shown in this image are a bit too small to see the colouration in detail, so it’s hard to decide whether they are dark coloured individuals of Trapania toddi or pale coloured individuals of Trapania brunnea.
