Colorful opisthobranch eggs are one thing that really stand out on our reefs. Since catching slugs in the act of laying eggs is like finding treasure, Phil and I put together a collection of nudis captured with their distinctive, tell-tale egg masses. If you find a lone egg mass without the adult, this guide may help you identify it. Although most species are from Southern California, this includes a few from British Columbia.
