Haminoea virescens.2014

10 mm long, fully mature adult; from wave-exposed shore at mouth of Catalina Harbor. I changed my identification of this animal from H. ovalis after seeing that the veligers hatching from its egg masses matched those hatching from H. virescens egg masses collected on the mainland.Even after spotting their white egg masses (on thin algal turf), the adults were very difficult to find. We also found its egg masses on the NW side of Isthmus Harbor. The egg masses of H. virescens from mainland southern California are larger and yellow in color.
