2 years!

I have agreed the first and only in two years - risky!
Change the group to invertebrates soon.

rightly

Mike Kendall - you have rightly questioned the Eulalia viridis ID.
There appears to be a number of green egg masses and some are quite small, less than 1cm.
I have collected these larger ones - ones 'we' think might indeed be Eulalia viridis from weedy pools, sandy tidal pools and the lower drying sand. That they were the same (identical) I have no doubt. Conditions must exist for them to be washed out of pools and for the transparent strand to become locked in the sand. Indeed that's where I photographed them.
