Chromodoris luteopunctata from Senegal (eggs)

Dear Bill,
To complete my last message on Chromodoris luteopunctata from Dakar, here is an egg-ribbon which was laid by one of animals in my tank. I forgot to send you it previously.
The photo isn't great because these eggs were laid in 'bad' place, just at the water level and so difficult to photograph.
Size : 15-20mm in diameter.

Thanks Marina,
A less than perfect photo is much better then no photo! Slugs often lay their eggs in the most impossible places for photography. This photo is a valuable addition to our knowledge of the species
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
