Cadlina modesta from British Columbia

Dear Bill,
Here is Cadlina modesta. This is the only time I've seen this animal.  Very shallow, 15 foot safety stop, grazing quickly on red algae.  Found in Campbell River, B.C., on Vancouver Island. [British Columbia, Canada].

Thanks Marli,
Cadlina is a sponge feeder, so although it would have been crawling over red algae it would not have been grazing on it.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
