Pink Volcano Barnacle

Tetraclita rubescens


This was the only one of its kind that I found. Most of the other barnacles around were gooseneck barnacles or smaller white ones that you can see next to this one. The color made is quite conspicuous on the rock.


Boulder covered in smaller barnacles, some mussels, and gooseneck barnacles.
