Concerning message #8260:
I've found these Favorinus eating an hexabranchus egg. In fact there were three on the egg ribbon.
I think first that was Favorinus tsuruganus but according to P. Bidgrain, he thinks that it is Favorinus cf. mirabilis (no black tip on the cerata).

Yes this is the species I suspect is a colour form of F. mirabilis. Have a look on the Fact Sheet of F. cf. mirabilis and earlier messages, where I discuss the differences between it, F. tsuruganus and F. mirabilis.
