Dear Bill,
Here are photos of two colour forms of Dendronotus albus I photographed at San Miguel
Island [Channel Ids, California] in July 2004.

Thanks Bruce,
I am not an expert on these animals but I wonder if they could be Dendronotus diversicolor? They both seem to have no more than 4 pairs of cerata. Any comments welcome.
