Two of five individuals encountered on north side of island in "The Notch" on path to North Landing. A known hotspot for the species on the island.
Massive 36" dbh. This tree has been here as long as the Richmond district, possibly earlier. There's a companion bay tree- curious to know more about the hydrology of this location. The house is also older than surrounding development.
About the size of a turban snail (1" ish across), and relatively thick-shelled, but looked vaguely like a nautilus. Deep umbilicus (testing out my non-existant mollusk vocab!?). Found in the shell line among a serious amount of rotten kelp and other seaweeds on Mavericks Beach.
Crab is pinkish with dark red markings across the surface of the outer shell. About the size of a silver dollar
