Eubranchidae

The family Eubranchidae includes small aeolids that often have lumpy or ringed cerata. They feed on hydroids and are usually found on their food. Egg masses are usually deposited on the hydroid and are often easier to see than the animals. Some produce acidic secretions from glands in the tips of their cerata. There are at least nine species known from Hawaii, all in the genus Eubranchus.
