Description

Found this intriguing looking kelp crab and wasn't sure what it was, but given the absence of decoration, I think it's just a young Pugettia producta. Real pretty, though.

REALLY GORGEOUS! Stalk stripe pattern was blue-blue-orange-blue-blue-orange with black separating the colors. Pale tentacles had some white speckling. Several anemones in a little cluster. TINY - about half the length of a Doto kya, so maybe 2 mm? More photos on today's Doto kya observation: http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/4529699

Striped Green Sea Anemone Diadumene lineata

Observer

rjadams55

Date

January 28, 2012

Description

This species of anemone is native to Asia but has been introduced widely around the world from ballast water and off the holds of ships. It is extremely tolerant to a wide range of abiotic conditions (salinity, temperature...), a condition that has certainly aided its spread. These individuals were found in the shallow water at the north end of the South Marsh where it abuts Whistelstop Lagoon.

It previously went by the name Haliplanella luciae.

There a lots of much larger broken valves on northern Monterey Bay beaches, but it's unusual to find whole valves. The shells don't seem that fragile, so I'm wondering why. @gbentall - Sea otters?
