description This is probably the largest Phyllodesmium species.
In addition, this species is one of those snails that store zooxanthellate algae in their skin.
The snail can benefit from the photosynthetic activity of these algae.
According to research on the Internet, this snail eats octocorals and is said to be found in particular on Sinularia species.
