I found 10 of these, 2 to 4 mm long, on a very fine, filamentous green alga in a shallow, high intertidal rocky pool amongst patchy salt marsh.

Specimens match Gould's (1870) description and illustrations of this species (as Calliopaea fuscata) from Boston Harbor.

Eggs at the bottom of a shallow pool, with a sample in a vial shown close-up in the 2nd image and a sample at the bottom of a plastic dish in the 3rd image. For scale, the markings on the bottom of the dish in the 3rd image are shown next to a mm scale in the last image. The eggs were therefore approximately 0.15 mm, or 150 microns, in diameter.

ID based on color, size of eggs, and proximity of spawning males.

Henricia sanguinolenta (10 mm arm length) caught feeding on Halichondria panicea, which varies from yellow to green depending on the presence of symbiotic cyanobacteria and exposure to light. The sea star everts its stomach and digests the sponge tissue, leaving behind the intact skeletal architecture (composed of tracts of siliceous spicules). Part of the feeding scar caused by this individual can be seen to the immediate right of the star.

Email from Mike Armstrong Assistant Director
Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries: The 3 pigment marks along the tail of each embryo is pretty telling. And no other marine fish puts out a gelatinous sheath with multiple embedded embryos. And this is the appropriate season to find them. Nice find! Here’s a link to some good info at the New England Aquarium. https://www.neaq.org/blog/goosefish-egg-veil-another-perspective/
