There were masses of Gracilariopsis (Red Spaghetti), not just a few strands like I've seen many times before. Most were free-floating, but I found one with holdfast attached to a rock, as seen in one photo.

Today I found twenty Evasterias troschelii (Mottled Star), and two were two-toned, something I'd never seen before.

I'm not sure about this-- it has seven arms! Evasterias troschelii (Mottled Star)? I counted 20 in this area, but have never seen seven arms. Or perhaps a Six-armed Star with seven arms? @bluediver?
