Daisy brittle star:
Daisy brittle star (Ophiopholis kennerlyi): The daisy brittle star is usually the only brittle star that local naturalists can identify, and often times brittle stars that belong to other species find themselves lumped with this one. It is not a particularly fragile species, and can usually be found everywhere that rocks are embedded in medium to fine sediment, but not in very fine or anoxic sediment. It is generally found in approximately the same intertidal zone as Blood star (Henricia leviuscula).
