Happy New Year.
Attached are some photos of Archidoris wellingtonensis I said I would send. They were taken in Whangarei Harbour [northeastern New Zealand]. We found both of them near the egg ribbon which was huge [see close-up below]. We positioned them for the photo with Diane in the background.

They certainly can grow fairly large, (up to 20cm), and the egg mass can have a diameter of 8 cm. I think I am right in thinking it is New Zealand's largest nudibranch.
