Hi Bill,
We're in process of putting a seminar together on gene transfer between algae and sacoglossans and it reminded me that I've been meaning to send you a photo of Elysia chlorotica and it's egg mass. The photo was taken in the lab several years ago, but I though you might like it. I've filled in the collection location details as best I can remember them.

Locality: Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, USA (Atlantic): intertidal salt marsh, Length: 1 cm. Autumn 1990. Photographer: Skip Pierce.

Thanks Skip,
It's a valuable addition as it shows the red and whitish spots so well.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
