Hi Chris,

Nice pictures.

So in the books I have this anemone is called Urticina lofotensis but I gather this is no longer even considered an accepted species and in any case apparently described a similar looking European animal. According to actinaria.com the valid name for our anemone is Cribrinopsis albopunctata. But, there are still web references to Urticina lofotensis if you look around.


I'd never heard of Urticina mcpeaki until now. Do you have any references for books or papers that sort this out?
