Merry found a Coryphella cooperi during a dock dive yesterday. Neither of us had seen one before, so I was excited to add it to my collection. I made a two-hour-plus dive this morning hoping to get a decent photo of one. Before I reached the silty bottom at sixteen feet I spotted a couple of subjects in the green algae. I began photographing the larger of the two, thinking to myself that it looked an awful lot like Apata pricei. I found six in total. When I uploaded my camera I found that five of them were indeed . The smallest one (that I didn't get a good photo of) was cooperi. I'll have to get silty again. :(

Visibility was a nice ten to twelve feet, even at low tide. I found several subjects but came away feeling a little dejected for not accomplishing my goal.
