Brooding transparent tunicate:
Brooding transparent tunicate (Corella inflata): This species is common, from the intertidal to the shallow subtidal areas. It was lumped with Transparent tunicate (Corella willmeriana) until 1981, and the two species are very similar. C. inflata differs from C willmeriana by the fact that it broods its larvae internally, by the greatly enlarged atrial chamber that provides a place for the larvae to be kept, and by its generally shallower range of habitats.
