We usually see Aplysia juliana around these eggs coloured both yellow and purple, but there is also the other Aplysia sp. around so will leave as Aplysia unless I see them spawning it.

Description

This was the only one I saw. Overall there was little washup either here at Maketu foreshore or along at the Kaituna River. At the river mouth there were a few tree branches and freshwater weeds that had come down the river and washed onto the beach. Not much though.
