We found several Antiopella barbarensis on Biodome in the past week. Merry suggested that we should check the balled up ones for eggs. I found my first one yesterday. Some nudibranchs spend a lot of time laying coils of intricate eggs, but Antiopella barbarensis was finished by the time we dropped back down for a second dive.
