Let me add my voice to the chorus of those happy to see the Forum back in regular operation. Like an addict, I was suffering serious withdrawal symptoms without my near daily nudi fix.
To continue the discussion on its egg masses [message #13060], here are photos of Anteaeolidiella indica from Hawaii that show egg masses. I'm quite sure these eggs came from the pictured individuals.
Locality: Oahu, Kewalo reef, Hawaii, USA. Depth: 1 meter. Length: 10mm or less. 1979. Shallow subtidal rubble reef. Photographer: Scott Johnson
They were relatively common on shallow subtidal (near intertidal) reefs around Oahu. These were just off a man-made breakwater near Kewalo Basin in Honolulu.

They certainly look like the egg ribbons I am familiar with. I assume the dark grey mass at the top right of the photo alongside is the trunk of a sea anemone, which I guess is the food supply of the nudibranch. I have never actually caught young hatchlings feeding, but perhaps they crawl to the nearest anemone. I assume like the adults they will eat the trunk.
