Shaggy Mouse Nudibranch

Aeolidia papillosa

Description:

I believe this is a shaggy mouse nudibranch. It was found in an area that has a thriving population of aggregating anemones (Anthopleura elegantissima) - it's main food source. Spotted at Constellation Park in West Seattle.

Habitat:

Found at low tide in an area with many aggregating anemones.

Notes:

It was found during the same time of year they are normally laying eggs, but I didn't spot any eggs on this outing.
