Description

Just guessing on the flatworm ID. About an inch long (though they seemed to range from roughly a half-inch to 2 inches), huge populations of them in shallower waters (probably 3-10 feet) all along the west bank of Tomales Bay. Lavender-tinged and fluttered gracefully; looked like little corkscrews at first glance (this guy is resting on a paddle). Thanks!

About a quarter-inch long, haunted the shoreline of quiet beaches along Tomales Bay in huge numbers, bit viciously the second your foot hit the water (leaving twin blood-spots). Really curious to learn what they are, thanks!
