Over the Christmas break I did some diving in the Florida group of islands, in the Solomon Islands. On a dive site known as Freight Express I found this slug which I have not been able to identify.
It was on a hard coral garden area at about 12 meters deep. It was about 30mm long. I cannot be certain that the egg ribon belonged to it, but as they were close together, it seems very likely. I found another identical slug about 20 meters away crawling across the sand.

This is what I am calling Godiva sp. 2. I suspect the egg mass is a dorids rather than an aeolids, and it seems a bit large for this animal.
