Gooseneck Barnacle

Pollicipes polymerus

Description:

Very plentiful at this beach. They seemed to thrive here amongst the mussels and anemones near the water as well as much higher up on the beach where other marine organisms weren't really growing. You can see a very young one growing in photo 3

Habitat:

Both close to the water and high up on the beach on the rocks at Schoolhouse Beach, Bodega Bay.
