Husbandry

Goniobranchus kitae (Gosliner, 1994)

Very similar to Goniobranchus tumuliferus. Main point of difference would seem to be the white spots on the gills and rhinophores in Goniobranchus kitae.

Goniobranchus kitae feed on sponges.

Synonymised names:
Chromodoris kitae Gosliner, 1994 (original combination)
