I'm guessing this is some kind of commensal with the innkeeper worms. Haven't dug into it yet.

Found while digging a hole in the mud / sand, along with lug worms and ghost shrimp, so could have been inhabiting the burrow (or body) of either.

New one to me! This crazy nudibranch was not teeny -- about 1" long. Cream body with brown speckling and cool yellow lines. Large foot. Rows of gills like Dendronotus? Oral tentacles flicked up and down like a cockatoo's crest. BUT THE WEIRDEST THING were these crazy long flowing 'streamers' coming from the top of each rhinophore sheath - kind of looked like worms, though clearly attached and marked like the rest of the body (cream with brown specks). Found on Tubularia. Invasive? Video: https://www.flickr.com/photos/30314434@N06/25521619833/in/dateposted/

UPDATE 5/16/2016: Here's the very nice video that the California Academy of Sciences created about this guy: https://www.facebook.com/calacademy/videos/10154157032862311/

This selfie was taken BY THE OCTOPUS, who also took a 90-second mostly-dark video of the inside of its den (with a muffled soundtrack of Alison Young and I laughing hysterically). The octopus grabbed my camera with three tentacles, and grabbed rocks with the others. After a determined tug-of-war that snapped the nylon wrist strap, it carried the camera deep into its den and started pressing buttons with its tentacles. Alison braved beak and tentacles to rescue the camera (the octo was still holding it) - is there anything she won't do for Citizen Science? Thank you Alison!

The alternate photo is the last one I took before the battle - you can see the first tentacle snaking towards the shiny camera...
