Description

I found this 10 mm long aeolid in the low intertidal on the south side of Chetco Point, Oregon in July 1996. After photographing and taking notes on the living specimen I preserved and sent it to Terry Gosliner, who made SEMs of its jaws and radula and identified it in late 2010 as a Eubranchus. CASIZ 114833.

This is the only specimen I have ever found of this species, which appears to be unique among NE Pacific aeolids for its color pattern (smooth rhinophores translucent distally and burgundy red proximally; cerata with encrusting white tips and a narrow subapical band of encrusting red, and cerata cores varying from orange distally to red proximally. The brown mandibles were visible through the head, and I had also noted that the viscera, including a pale pink-cream ovotestis, were visible through the body wall which lacked pigment, but in this image, scanned from a print from 35 mm film, appears a little more opaque than it actually was).

Undescribed species, or an introduced one? Brookings Harbor, with some commercial fishing boats, is close by and might have provided a vector, and Chetco Pt. and Brookings are nestled in a coastal bight that likely has an upwelling shadow fostering local retention of planktonic larvae.

I would be very interested in hearing if anyone recognizes this species!

Barry Roth shared with me that this doesn't look like much like typical H. cypreophila which I had initially identified it as. It does look like H. napaea however it is an un-usual location for H. napaea and possibly a downhill extension for that species or possibly something different all together.

I was watching a tiny hummingbird (approx. 1" tall) perched on a limb. Then, all of a sudden, I noticed this pygmy owl sitting on an adjacent branch looking straight at me with its bright yellow eyes. It was about the size of my fist (4" x 2.5"). Its belly was white; its head and back were brown.

These are terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad photos. The owl looks like a blob. I forgot my camera battery, so I was reduced to using my old cellphone camera, which takes awful pictures. A one-in-a-million chance and I blew it. 😢 This is only the 2nd time in my life I've seen an owl in the wild.

In addition to the hummingbird and owl, there were two Bewick's wrens and a couple of smaller birds in the same tree.

They were more like 8mm long and glossy (not argentines, not Prenelops, didn't really look like Camponotus, but I'm terrible with ants). Note to self: in the future. photograph any ants you see with pseudoscorpions.

This nudibranch appears to be quite particular about its prey and is most often found feeding on the polyps of the large hydroid Zyzzyzus rubusidaeus. This hydroid is found only in strongly current-swept habitats and is most abundant in Weynton Passage, near Port McNeill, BC. The second picture shows several nudibranchs attacking the polyps and a deposit of their eggs near the base of the hydroids.

I believe I encountered these two after mating as they were facing each other and more tightly coiled before I was able to get my camera set up. The male was touching the female with its antennae and first pair of legs, and maybe the weird second legs, but the gonopods seemed to be folded back.

There are two animals in this image. The genital mass of each is protruding and the individual on the left is depositing a white line of substance on the dorsum of the right individual. I hypothesize that this is ovoposition (egg laying). The other individual proceeded to reciprocate the behavior.

Undescribed species, 22 mm long. I spotted this specimen on its flat, coiled egg mass (also see 2nd image) on a pebble grabbed with gray mud from 186 m depth off Cape Alava, WA while on a cruise of the NOAA Ship McArthur II in June 2004. The translucent dorsum was finely scabrous to the touch. The 4th image is an SEM, made by Sandra Millen, of some of its radular teeth. Sandra confirmed this as an undescribed species and last I heard had been well along in describing it. The first three images were scanned from prints from 35 mm film.
