We have just received a query from Else from Dunedin...
Found on a intertidal washed up treetrunk on the northern side of Yellow Head (Otago Peninsula). The closest I can get is: The egg mass of
Archidoris wellingtonensis, a nudibranch gastropod mollusc....seaslug.
Is this correct?
Yes definitely nudibranch egg case and very likely Doris wellingtonensis, (note the name change from Archidoris). The egg ribbon is laid in a coil but very difficult to see that from this photo.
Great photo, if you zoom in you can see lots of tiny eggs within the jelly ribbon.
