This deep water sea star was found in the gut of a rockfish! Observation by Eric Austin Yee, who was cleaning a boat belonging to J&M Sportfishing. This species is found 150-1000’ deep according to Smithsonian echinoderm researcher Chris Mah, who stayed up late helping me with this ID. 🙏 Unfortunately the sea star was thrown overboard in 100’ water after its photo op.

Found on encrusting bryozoan (6th image) on the underside of a cobble in mid-intertidal pool.

The shape of dorsal tubercles (with spicules not protruding through their ends) and the presence of a large, whitish glandular tubercle behind of the gills (see 2nd, 4th & 5th images) seem to match Atalodoris jannae, but as far as I know that species is known only from the N. Pacific?!

I did not notice the posterior white tubercle in the field when I took these images, figured the dorid was probably Onchidoris muricata and did not think of collecting it, but now think I need to return to the pool where I found it, and try to relocate it...

Not the best photo, but we had a positive ID from the captain and naturalists on board. We were in about 7000 feet of water. There were 2-5 whales in the pod. By the time I was able to get the camera on them only one was still at the surface. What we saw were brownish, fairly small whales, with hard-to-see short, bushy spouts. The dorsal fin was far down the back. Too small (and brown) to be Minke Whales, and different in shape and behavior from any of the local dolphin species. Cuvier's were seen close to this spot last week. These whales were up for just a short time, and then dove, and had not resurfaced after twenty minutes of our waiting for them. I've been waiting 22 years to see this species.

Armina californica feeding on Renilla koellikeri was located on sandy substrate at a depth of 40 feet. Lengths were between 1.5-3 cm. Water temperature was 57* degrees F.

Note that a different measuring device was used for water temperature. This device was calibrated and found to provide a true measurement, so it is not necessary to add 4 degrees to find the true temperature as with my other observations. See my notes for details.
