|Flatworm Merry Strikes Again|

Merry has a Masters degree in Science from ASU. Having a scientist for a dive buddy can be challenging. Yesterday she found a nudibranch that we have yet to identify. Today she found a flatworm that may be Cryptobiceros bajae but can be difficult to I.D. as they are a mimic species. Sometimes they look different than the one Merry found. I often have a lot of homework to do after diving with her. Why can't she find a starfish or garibaldi?
Aside from the flatworm the dive at Golf Ball Reef was uneventful. Fifteen feet visibility with 53° water and the usual critters were out and about. Berthella californica were laying eggs everywhere. Mating pairs of Doriopsilla albopunctata dotted many rocks. I tried to get a rainbow sea perch to hold still but it refused.
