Phycophila euchlorais commonly referred to as Ragged Sea Hare. Difficulty in the aquarium: There are no reports available yet that this animal has already been kept in captivity successfully. Toxicity: Toxic hazard unknown.
This is a small, translucent-cream sea hare "frosted" with white and brown flecks. It's decorated with prominent blue and gold ocelli at all sizes. Although superficially similar to Stylocheilus striatus, it can be distinguished from that species by its more prominent blue and gold ocelli, more elaborate villi and brown flecks that are random rather than arranged in lines. The ornateness of the villi and amount of white pigment are variable.
It feeds on cyanobacteria.
