Note(s): The dorid nudibranch Doriopsilla pharpa Marcus has been observed from Massachusetts to Florida. Specimens from creeks and tide pools were collected with their prey, the sulfur burrowing sponge, Cliona celata, in North Inlet Estuary, South Carolina. The nudibranch had an annual life cycle with oviposition from late March to early June. The smallest individuals observed copulating (= 10 mm in length) were 4-5 mm shorter than the smallest specimens observed ovipositing.
