Filling in some holes in my slug life list. I found three of these on Bryopsis corticulans. Unbelievably well-camouflaged.

One of the most amazing worms I've ever seen. About 8 mm long, climbed out of a clump of tunicates we put in a dish, undoubtedly sponges and other things mixed in too. Very close resemblence to this image, ID'd as A. speciosa at http://invasions.si.edu/nemesis/calnemo/GroupSummary.jsp?GRP=Annelids-Polychaetes, but given the image at http://biodiversitylibrary.org/page/34212266 that seems like it might be wrong.

This observation is for the white, branching bryozoan, which seems like it is Zoobotryon verticillatum, a southern species that, according to Light's, "[o]ccasionally occurs in San Francisco Bay" (p. 879). Presumably another species occuring farther north than normal due to warmer ocean temps.
