Concerning message #14066:
Here are some images of a pair of Stylocheilus longicauda found on a rubber sandal, cast up onto Brunswick Heads beach, Northern New South Wales. Goose neck barnacles, bryozoans and patches of very short, green leafy algae were on the sandal. The obvious egg coils were the first thing I spotted and a closer inspection revealed the two slugs.
On observing the animals when placed back into water they exhibited the same behaviour that Mike Greenemeier reported. Bending in all directions while standing on their tail and feeding on the green algae on the surface of the sandal.
Locality: Brunswick Heads, Flotsam, Northern New South Wales, Pacific, 27 October 2009, Stranded on beach. Length: 40mm. Photographer: Denis Riek.

You seem to have a special skill at finding this interesting and rarely reported sea hare. These animals are certainly much more mature than those in your earlier message [#22615] and I have no doubt that the egg strings belong to them.
