Husbandry

Phyllaplysia lafonti P. Fischer, 1872

The identity of many of the small sea hares of the genera Phyllaplysia and Petalifera is worldwide very confused.

The background colour of Phyllaplysia lafonti is very variable.On the body are concentric stripes of lighter and darker pigmentation.This seahare was originally described from
the Atlantic coast of France.But Phyllaplysia lafonti also can be found from the Indo-West Pacific.

Phyllaplysia lafonti lives on on the brown alga Padina and feeds on diatoms.

Very similar is Petalifera petalifera.
