Yoshi Hirano has kindly sent a series of photos showing the subtle differences in egg mass, size, and embryonic development between Facelina quadrilineata and Facelina bilineata. I have arranged them on a separate page illustrating how important these characters can be in distinguishing species.

Dr Yoshi Hirano is at the
