Seen those tiny slugs - Okenia pellucida - on a bryozoan looking like algae possibly Zoobotryon sp.; which was on the wall of rock pool. We counted around 24 individuals and seen white irregular tubular egg cases on branches of bryzoan.
As you have mentioned in one of your earlier messages the bryozoan was overgrown with green alga.
Locality: Mandavi, Ratnagiri, 10-70 centimeters, Maharashtra, India, Arabian Sea, 22 February 2010, Intertidal, deep rockpool, with loose rocks,. Length: 7-12 mm. Photographer: Vishal Bhave.

It's certainly Okenia pellucida, and good to fill in another gap in its known distribution.
