Dear Bill,
Concerning your comments to my mesage #14556: I am sure that it's the eggs of this kind of nudi.
Before we took those photos, we observed it's laying eggs. We have observed two long threads on the rhinophore just similar to the finding of Nishina Masayoshi in April 16, 2002.

We have studied the morphology of its radula by SEM and it looks the same as Baba's illustrations.
Thank you!
