Husbandry

Eubranchus exiguus (Alder & Hancock, 1848)

The body is greyish-white and speckled with brown or green pigment. The cerata are few in number and shaped like an urn. This feature distinguishes Eubranchus exiguus from other closely related species.

Eubranchus exiguus feeds on hydrozoa (Obelia, Hydrallmania, Laomedea).
