Dear Bill,
The Echizen coast in winter is very cold and rough. It's a very severe winter for nudibranchs. The period when they can become active is for the three months from July to September. The population explodes during this summer period.

Date: 3 Aug 2002
Location: Echizen coast, Fukui pref. Japan
Length: 10mm
Depth: 6m
Water temp: 27C degree

Dear Nishina,
I separated these photos from your message about Hypselodoris maritima as these are the similarly coloured species Hypselodoris sagamiensis. Can you confirm these are its egg ribbons?
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
