Some lovely solitary Anthopleura in our wet lab. Note the striped lines radiating out from the central disc in the specimen on the left. Those lines are a good feature to distinguish Anthopleura sola, the warmer water species from Anthopleura xanthogrammica, the colder water species. Both now occur commonly on our local coast and you will meet them in our field trips later this semester. Also, near the center of the photo, a turban snail, Tegula funebralis...whom you will also soon meet! Thanks, Rachel!
