Description

Looked blackish with a gray center when tucked into itself. Attached to an oyster-crusted algae-laden rock that was collected from a beach where it was partially submerged. When the anemone opened, the arms appeared mostly gray-green and it was approximately the size of a thumbnail. I couldn't get a good enough photo with my phone but Chris got a better one (so I've uploaded his photo instead).

Description

Here's one of two Epiactis lisbethae or Brooding Anemones I saw today at low tide, hanging onto a boulder. It was only about 1/2" diameter. These are different from the Brooding Anemones on iNaturalist, Epiactis prolifera. I found them on p.86 of Lamb & Hanby's book, Marine Life of the Pacific Northwest.

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.
