  • Pyura stolonifera Cunjevoi Sea Squirt

    13 Aug 2012-38.4,145.1Leuba Ridgway

    Sea squirts/ tunicates/ascidians which appeared like clumps of collapsed "sand-crusted" sacs stuck to a sea fan. Each sac had two openings with scalloped edges - one on top and the other to the side (inhalant & exhalant siphons). The sacs seemed to have a reddish tinge. The inside of each sac had organs which were red in colour with a brown segment towards the base (pics 3 & 4). The organs seemed to be covered by mucilaginous substance. Commonly also called Conjevoi.
