The Palos Verdes cliffs provided their usual spectacular backdrop for our run around the peninsula yesterday morning. We made good time on a gentle west swell; it was a beautiful day.
Patrick will be jazzed to learn that Doris montereyensis brings the total to 15 species of nudibranchs that we've seen at White Point Rock. This one appeared to be feeding on a sponge of the same color.
Perhaps due to the remarkable assortment of bryozoans and sponges available as a food source, we found 4 species of nudi mating and laying eggs yesterday. Phil posted the mating Diaulula.
Here are 3 Triopha catalinae sandwiching eggs between blades of red algae.
