Description

This endoparasitic copepod forms swollen galls on the leaves of the sea pen Ptilosarcus gurneyi. Usually a male and female of these tiny and rather ugly copepods are found in each gall. For more information and pictures of these little beasts, see Williams et al, 2016 in Marine Diversity.

Description

The scattered spindle-shaped sclerites in the neck of the polyps are distinctive among octocorals in the region. Images taken in lab of specimen collected at low tide from Cayucos. When disturbed, the polyps of this species can retract completely into the colony mass (see 4th image).

For a good view of a colony of this species in situ at low tide at Scott Creek, Santa Cruz County, CA, see image by @lemurdillo here: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/5160161

Although this observation also falls within the boundaries of the MarineGEO iNaturalist umbrella project (which is an ongoing collaborative work between MarineGEO and the Tennenbaum Marine Observatories Network, the Florida Museum of Natural History, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History Museum, and our network partners), this is not from a MarineGEO specific campaign.
