[Extract] We know very little about what preys on sea slugs (Piel, 1991), and specially on tropical species. Predation of opisthobranchs by pycnogonids has been documented several times from warm temperate habitats (Piel, 1991; Rogers et al., 2000). The following laboratory observations of the chelate pycnogonid Anoplodactylus longiceps Williams, 1941, feeding on the nudibranch Okenia sp. were recently obtained from samples of an intertidal microhabitat in tropical north Queensland, Australia.
