Recently you have received a message from Albert Koulman about, Limacia clavigera, another new record of a nudi species for the Netherlands. At Burghsluis, Oosterschelde, the Netherlands, we have found numerous specimens, up to 8 in one dive, of Limacia, including copulating pairs, spawning individuals and egg ribbons.
Enclosed you will find some pictures of this species as they were taken at this specific dive site, including one with an egg ribbon, and one in vitro image.
I hope you like the scans and that you will add them to your Forum.
Greetings from a small country in the northern hemisphere, where nudi spotting can be quite exciting.

Thanks very much for the excellent photos. I have put your in vitro one at the top of the page. Any more photos of other interesting Dutch finds would be very welcome. The animals in situ seem to be crawling on an erect bryozoan colony. Their preferred food, the bryozoan Electra pilosa is an encrusting form. Is what I see in the photos Electra growing over, and smothering, a branching algae, or is it an arborescent bryozoan?
