Photos of Dendronotus albus

Hi Bill,
Here are a couple of photos of Dendronotus albus from Carmel Bay, California, in about 20M of water. Hope they help sort things out. To be honest I'm still a little unclear on the subtleties between D. albus and D. diversicolor so I'm hoping someone more expert than myself will come through with some additional info.

Note that the second image shows 2 animals mating.
