Rock scallop, Crassedoma giganteum, Metridium senile, Metridium senile, Sea strawberry, Gersemia rubiformis
Arena rock is just jam-packed with invertebrate life. The orange "lips" in this
picture are actually the mantle of a rock scallop (Crassedoma giganteum).
The bulbous clumpy soft coral is a sea strawberry (Gersemia rubiformis).
These contrast with the white of the anemone, Metridium senile.
