Here is a photo I took of Hypselodoris placida and its eggs. Many H. placida are laying eggs at present at this place. Hopefully it will be useful for your research.

Thanks for this photo. It is a useful addition to our knowledge. I have also included a close-up of the the head as it shows the fine tubercles all over the mantle which, if you look at other photos on the Forum, seem to be a feature of this species. They remind me of the tubercles Jean-Pierre Bielecki recently illustrated for the Mediterranean species Hypselodoris orsinii.
