Here is a picture of Slide Ranch, one of my favorite places that I’ve been to over the past year. Sea star populations at this location have been on the decline (we did not see any Leptas), although we did see a couple of Pisasters ( 8) and only one Henricia plus an abundance of Owl limpets, barnacles and mussels. Enjoy the pic.
Caught our little Alderia cruzin’ around on its mud patch today in the wet lab. 🙂
Here’s some of the organisms we saw at Slide Ranch.
And the view from one of the sites where we measured mussel bed height.
Well, the pics aren’t the best, but here’s a few of our tiny Alderia.
Here’s also a pic from asnailodyssey.com of A. willowi and A. modesta. Hard to say which one it is. Hopefully someone will be able to ID it on iNaturalist. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/5246083
Here are some pics I took in the lab today. My camera batteries died so I had to use my iPhone, so these still aren’t the best. But you can see the cerata.
Hi guys, I was keying some snails in the wet lab and wanted to double check my results. Any corrections/suggestions would be appreciated.
