AppearanceThe body is broad, truncate, and rather flattened, up to 4 cm long. The ground colour is usually pale green, beige, or cream with large ocelli of cream, brown, pink, and purple in varying shades. The sole of the foot also has ocelli.
DistributionThis species occurs in the Indo-Pacific. Recent work on the photosynthetic abilities of ''Plakobranchus'' reveals that ''P. ocellatus'' is actually a species complex consisting of at least four distinct clades.
HabitatThese seaslugs live in sheltered, shallow water habitats with stones or gravel and silt. They feed on a broad food spectrum, including members of the genera ''Halimeda'', ''Caulerpa'', ''Udotea'', ''Acetabularia'' and further unidentified algae, with an emphasis on ''Halimeda macroloba''.
