Dear Bill,

Could you help me to identify this nudibranch?

It is interesting to see how it lays its eggs directly on the sand.

Locality: Lambeh strait, 15 m, Indonesia, North Sulawesi, Indopacific, april 2006, muck dive. Length: 70 mm. Photographer: François Zylberman.

Many thanks.

Dear François,

This is an unnamed species of Janolus I am calling Janolus sp. 4 on the Forum.It is certainly strange seeing it laying its eggs like this on a loose

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
