Crimson Anemone:
Crimson Anemone (Cribrinopsis fernaldi): This beautiful anemone is variable in color, ranging from nearly white to deep pink or orange. One feature that is very consistent is the fine chevron shaped markings on the tentacles. This species is not common in the intertidal zone but may be abundant in the subtidal. Unlike many anemones this specieis is often found on soft mud or sandy areas, attached to isolated rocks, bottles, shells, etc. It hosts several species of shrimps, including Short-scaled eualid (Eualus suckleyi), Lebbeus grandimanus, and Lebbeus acudactylus.
