Dendrodorididae

The family Dendrodorididae includes large, nocturnal dorids that lack a radula. They feed on sponges by dissolving their tissues with glandular secretions and sucking up the remains. Most are soft bodied and some have elaborate tubercles on the notum. There are about 15 species in Hawaii in two genera (Dendrodoris and Doriopsilla).
