California Trivia (Pseudopusula californiana)
Caption
California false cowrie, formerly known as Trivia californiana. In this image, the mantle is covering the shell. Snails in the family Triviidae have "short-spired shells with an elongate aperture, and inner and outer lips bearing denticles. They feed on tunicates." Both Pseudopusula and Pusula have transverse ridges around the shell. In the California false cowry the ridges span the midline, whereas Solander's false cowry has a distinct dorsal furrow lacking ridges.

White sea urchin (Lytechinus pictus)
Caption
Photo was taken at "Ballbuster" on 4/30/17 around 11am. The average depth on the dive was 69 feet. The water was colder then usual for this time year. Between 46- 50 F. The urchins were (as you can see from the photo) basically on bare rock. There were three additional urchins on "Outter McAbee" on the same date around 1pm. The average depth was 37 feet.

Pelagic red crab (Pleuroncodes planipes)
Caption
Red pelagic crabs (Pleuroncodes planipes) washed up on Coral Street Beach in Pacific Grove, CA beginning October 7, 2015. This is an exceedingly unusual event for the Monterey area, as these crabs are normally offshore of Baja California, but warm waters have transported them north. These crabs haven't washed ashore in this area since 1982-1983, an El Nino year. NOAA is tracking a current El Nino that has contributed to the warm water plume, and it is assumed the two events are once again related. Pleuroncodes stranding events are rare occurrences in Monterey Bay and usually coincide with ENSO events. The species was first discovered in 1859 during a mass-stranding event in Monterey. Further stranding events in Monterey occurred later in 1959 and again in 1969. Dr. Steve Webster, senior marine biologist at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, noted that when present, seagulls were feeding on so many crabs that they could not get airborne. Pleuroncodes are also a source of food for fishes, rays, and pinnipeds (seals and sea lions).
