So sad to see this. Looked like it had just happened. By the time I left Shell Beach, someone had removed it.

Noticed this in a photo I was taking of a Triopha. Is this really a nudibranch or am I just being hopeful? Wish I had noticed it when I was out on the reef so I could've gotten a better picture.

Only saw this in small quantity along the Pomo Canyon trail under shady tree canopy. The sweet/spicy almost fennel-like seeds were ripe and tasty.
