Here are two ova scans of Gymnodoris nigricolor. One is of the animal laying eggs (rfb2388-B) at the air-water interface of a small glass sorting bowl; the second is of an egg rosette on the glass side of an aquarium (rfb2383) . . . this egg mass measured 8x13mm. Unfortunately the size of the two animals was not recorded, but the animals were collected in June of 1990, from Seragaki, Okinawa. I can't recall ever seeing ova being deposited at the water's surface before, perhaps the 'branch didn't like the glass walls of the sorting bowl?
