Goddard (1992, 2001b) also mistook dense nephrocysts for eyespots in the arminid nudibranch
Janolus fuscus, but these have also been confirmed to be nephrocysts in both this species (Wolf and Young 2012; pers.

Larval period and its influence on post-larval life history: comparison of lecithotrophy and facultative planktotrophy in the aeolid nudibranch
Abstract.--Phidiana hiltoni is a conspicuous nudibranch
sea slug native to the northeastern Pacific Ocean.
It has been a bumper year for nudibranch
, or sea slugs, according to several Wildlife Trusts, a good autumn for sightings of curled octopus by divers, and basking sharks were seen in Cardigan Bay for the first time in three years.
