Yes this one is bright fuschia-colored! Found it on red algae, where it obviously had been munching for some time.

Description

I was excited to find this new isopod, Idotea stenops, or Feather Boa Isopod, aka Seaweed Isopod. Indeed it was not on Feather Boa Kelp, it was found on some red seaweed at low tide. This isopod is about 1" long, a dark army green.
