    I have seen many kinds of eggs at Breakwater (Monterey, CA) but I have never seen anything like these. I apologize profusely for the blurriness, but I really hope someone can tell me what critter laid them. They were seen in 35 feet of water out in the sand but close to the wall this month (July).

    Thanks, MaxBottomtime for squinting at my pic and replying.I thought Kellet's whelk eggs were more roundish coin-like eggs.

    Leafy Hornmouth eggs

    Yours don't look pointy, but they could be hornmouth eggs.
