Panikkar, N K (1949) Egg mass of Doliid gastropod mollusc from Krusadai Island. Journal of the Bombay Natural History Society, 48 (3). pp. 608-609.
During a visit to Krusadai Island in 1947 we found a few gelatinous ribbons washed ashore at Kundugal point on 25-2-47. On examination, these proved to be the egg masses of a gastropod mollusc. In addition to the fresh spawn mass in which the embryos were alive, there were four other ribbons which on account of exposure to the sun had become tough and leathery, superficially resembling the cast skin of snakes. The spawn masses were brought to the laboratory and kept alive for three days.
