It seems there is word out there that the NE Pacific Solaster paxillatus is a separate, undescribed species. Placing it as such (9 arms that taper abruptly, not puffy in armpits), until / if ever / such species is described. That way if that happens it will be easy to bring the whole group into the new taxon.

Had this unique behavioural observation recently. I have already checked in with experts (Lamb, Behrens, Fletcher, Kocian) and they have also not seen this before.

I don't believe they are mating. In my observations of mating, Hooded Nudibranchs pair up and orient right-side-to-right side, bodies elongated.
