I have a question: If I found a very small aeolid nudibranch in an opisthobranch egg mass could I assume that it might be a species of the genus Favorinus?
I found two aeolid nudibranchs in a different opisthobranch's egg mass, but I couldn't take their picture. After I saw them they were the same species and they seem to belong to the genus Favorinus.

I think you can be fairly safe in assuming that an aeolid that eats opisthobranch eggs is most probably a member of the genus Favorinus. However the only way to be sure is to have a look at their anatomy, and in particular the single row of radular teeth.
