Tritoniopsis frydis: egg-ribbon

March 9, 2004
From: Marina Poddubetskaia

Dear Bill,
To accompany my previous message [#12336] on Tritoniopsis frydis, here are some photos of the eggs. I'm convinced they belong to this species. Egg-ribbon is 10mm in size and all other data are the same than in previous message. Please, also note some eggs near the white specimen (in the previous message too).

Thanks Marina,
These certainly look like tritoniid eggs and match the type of egg ribbon we already have on the Forum for aquarium animals. However there is another message today [#12411] which seems to be of this species, but its eggs are wrapped around the gorgonian 'stalk'. I guess we will have to wait for more information
Best wishes
Bill Rudman
