Description

I observed a mass of Sea Whip, Leptogorgia setacea, that washed on the beach near Port Aransas, Texas.

This species is quite common in the area, although such large entanglement is not so common.

I looked for the small ectoparasite Sea whip Simnia, Siminialena marferula, which is often found on beached sea whips, but I did not find any snail at that time.

Description from Wikipedia

Anthozoa is a class within the phylum Cnidaria. Unlike other cnidarians, anthozoans do not have a medusa stage in their development. Instead, they release sperm and eggs that form a planula, which attaches to some substrate on which the cnidarian grows. Some anthozoans can also reproduce asexually through budding. More than 6,100 species have been described.

No range data available.
