Egg mass of Haminoea zelandiae

From: Bill Rudman

To accompany my other message on Haminoea zelandiae [#18126] here are some photos of its egg mass. All I can give as details is that each egg mass was 30 mm long and 10 mm in diameter. The egg masses are a very characteristic shape, consisting of a sausage mass of clear jelly in which is embedded a spiral string of bright yellow eggs.
