Description

Troschel's Sea Star is not unlike the Ochre or Purple sea star except in that it's limbs are considerably slimmer and the central disk much smaller. This one was exposed on a rock at low tide, but at the very lowest portion of the inter-tidal zone, only about 1m from the water at the tide's lowest point.
