Black Rock/Black Point Catalina Island. Dense kelp forest ~50ft. In the paper Mutualism Among sessile Invertebrates: A Mediator of Competiton and Predation by Richard W. Osman and Julie Ann Haugsness at UCSB the relationship between Celleporaria brunnea and an unknown Zanclea species is described. The Zanclea species is a epizoite that stings predators in return for a place to settle. I believe these photos show this relationship. his was observed in multiple spots at this dive site.
