Concerning message #21205:
Hi there, I have just discovered many similar creatures at Mount Coolum beach on the Sunshine Coast today. I think they are probably more likely to be Glaucilla marginata? a close relative of Glaucus atlanticus.
Locality: Mount Coolum beach, Beach, Queensland, Pacific Ocean, 15 Jan 2009, Inter-Tidal beach. Length: 7 mm. Photographer: Rob Blackmore.

Yes this is Glaucilla. On reflection, Ken Thomas's animal - which your refer to - could well be Glaucilla marginata rather than Glaucus, but its a bit hard to be sure from the photo.
