Husbandry

Risbecia godeffroyana (Bergh, 1977)

The backround colour is a creme-white with a orange and a bright purplish blue marginal band. On the blue mantle margin there are dark purplish blue spots.

Risbecia godeffroyana is a food specialist. This species feeds exclusively on sponges, probably genus Euryspongia.

Very similar are Hypselodoris imperialis known from Hawaii and Hypselodoris pulchella from East Arfica.
