Scientific Name Caprella sp.
Location 49 km W of San Jose, California, USA
Comments Skeleton Shrimp (Caprella sp.) were EVERYWHERE on the ostrich plume hydroids (Aglaophenia sp.), even out of the water. I was reading Between Pacific Tides the night before, and they mentioned Aglaophenia latirostris was a great habitat for pycnogonids, so I kept sifting and sifting through the hydroids (Minette, I even used my little net!), but alas, no sea spiders. Still, caprellids rock, so I was happy to find them instead.
