Dear Coral-listers, 

Has anyone working on reefs in the Pacific (other than Hawaii) had 
experiences with mortality of Porites corals due to the nudibranch, 
Phestilla sibogae?  I am looking for information on Phestilla predation on 
corals either in situ on the reef, transplanted to different habitats, or 
in flow-through tanks in a laboratory setting.  If you have had any 
experiences with these nudibranchs (or any other coral-feeding 
nudibranchs!), please contact me directly at:
