Are we correct in thinking that this is Bulla ampulla, laying its eggs in seagrass and algae?

firstname.lastname@example.orgKoretz, B., 2005 (May 5) Bulla ampulla laying eggs. [Message in] Sea Slug Forum. Australian Museum, Sydney. Available from http://www.seaslugforum.net/find/13703
Note added 11 May 2005: See message #13738 suggesting extra eggs are those of Petalifera ramosa.
This is Bulla ampulla and it certainly appears to be laying eggs. They do look very similar to those in Erwin Kohler's message [#6752] which we suspected were the eggs of Bulla. I think its eggs are those in the tangled string, but I think there are also something elses's eggs on the sea grass leaves. They seem to be deposited in rows across the leaves and are possibly the eggs of a small sea hare such as Phyllaplysia.
