Red Anenome, species?

Sorry to say my knowledge of anenome species is very lacking. I'm in the market for a pacific coast invert. book.

I use Gotshall's Guide to Marine Invertebrates (Sea Challengers, 1994) for the common US-Canada West Coast inverts, although there are a couple of other books on the market
I think your anemone is a species of Urticina, possibly U. lofotensis (if the column is red with white spots) or U. piscivora (if the column is simply crimson red)
I think it is a true anemone, not a coralliomorpharian

I believe I have a couple of anemone pics. I guess I only have one uploaded and it is a mouth shot.

It must be U. lofotensis as the stalk is red with white spots.
Cool forum topic!
