Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #4885
Goodness, it has a str iped penis!More scientifically, it also has a 6+mm long spike called a vestibular stylet, which is chitinous.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #2200
It is interesting to see that the penis is pigmented with brown dashes. I do not think that has been reported previously.

How cute! Yes it is a juvenile Jorunna rubescens. I have seen several pictures of this species from around Tulamben.
