Dear Bill,
Thank you for the ID and information. Attached is a part image of another of the animals in the egg mass.

Kind regards,

Dear Jim,
Thanks for the close up. I had hoped it would show the purple spot more clearly but I suspect its clearer at a smaller magnification. It certainly suggests Favorinus mirabilis but it would be nice to compare their radula and find a more 'typical' F. mirabilis without a white back or oral tentacles, or with a white tip to the cerata.
