•Distribution: This species occurs in the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean.
•Size: The length of the slug is about 4 cm.
•Diet: In the West Pacific they feed on the green algae Chlorodesmis fastigiata, commonly known as turtle weed.
•Conservation status: Least concern.
•Dangerous: Not to humans.
•Did you know?:This Sacoglossa can change the orientation of its cerata (those flaps on its back) according to its behavior. At rest, the cerata are flattened and overlapped in longitudinal series like scales. When this Sacoglossa crawls, the cerata are elevated and curled. When strongly stimulated, this Sacoglossa swims by powerfully flapping its cerata in coordinated waves. The cerata are cast off (autotomised) very readily when an animal is irritated, even touched lightly
