João Pedro Silva The shallowest adult (way over 10cm long) Marionia blainvillea I've found. Not calling it futile: it was found only 8.5m deep. Most of the adults seen here in Portugal are found by technical divers. However, in Farilhões (Lat: 39,4725, Lon: -9,545), they're a common find near Paramuricea clavata around 20m deep.

João Pedro Silva Feeding habits: Marionia blainvillea feeding on Paralcyonium spinulosum. This was a very large adult (~7cm long) shot last October (water was 18ºC) in Farilhões (a group of small islets approximately 15km northwest of Peniche, Portugal), 25m deep. This spot has a vertical rock wall descending to -30m and some areas are densely covered with Paramuricea clavata. This individual was shot close to the gorgonians but it was very keen on eating Paralcyonium spinulosum instead. The gorgonians in this area often have the large egg masses and sometimes the small whitish translucent juveniles can also be found there. I wonder if any of you has already found M. blainvillea feeding on P. spinulosum.

João Pedro Silva Here's a video of this spot (Rabo de Asno... literally "Donkey's Tail", don't ask me why) by one of the local dive centers. It gives you a better idea of how the wall is covered by Paramuricea clavata: http://youtu.be/ws14mzy4_g0

João Pedro Silva A very large (7cm long) Marionia blainvillea feeding on Paralcyonium spinulosum. Lots of Paramuricea clavata around, lots of juveniles there, too... maybe this one was just getting a dessert.
