|A Little More Variety At Little Reef|

For a small reef that I expected very little from, this one sure offers us enough variety to keep us coming back. For the third consecutive Saturday we ventured to a kelp-covered rocky reef near Pt. Vicente. We found several species of nudibranchs that we usually see once or twice per year, and we found them in large numbers. Three different Polyceras, atra, hedgpethi and tricolor were found on most rocks. I spotted five Hopkin's Roses and Kevin Lee found two tiny Cuthona albocrustas. He also found a potential new nudi for his collection, although I think it may be Dendronotus venustus.
In the kelp were Doto amyra, Dendronotus venustus, Eubranchus rustyus, Corambe pacifica and Corambe steinbergae. I only saw one Spanish Shawl, so this reef seems like it was made for us.
As we neared home we passed the twin brigantines Irving Johnson and Exy Johnson on their way into King Harbor.
