||This flatworm feeds on the solitary ascidian Corella willmeriana.
These are juveniles and there were several inside of each tunicate. Adults
seem to be one to a tunicate. After they have eaten the entire contents,
they crawl across the rocks to another tunicate. The flatworm has been
redescribed by Hilda Ching (1977): Canadian Journal of Zoology 55(2): 338-342.
