Hoping this is more of a contribution than a query. Here is another photo of Peltodoris nobilis mating and of their egg coil. If I indeed have the ID correct, thought it might be interesting to offer these photos to show what variation there can be in the spotting in this species. Thanks for all you do.

Well these are certainly some great shots of Peltodoris nobilis, indeed showing the extremes in color variation. The egg shots are great also, in Bill's close-up, cropped shot you can really see the morphology and arrangement of the egg capsules and the strands that form the ribbon. My only question is why do you think these eggs belong to this species?
Thanks for sharing,
