I noticed filamentous algae covering the Turtle Grass (Thalassia testudinum) in the mixing zone. There were healthy seagrasses and macro algae outside the mixing zone.

I found these washed up on the beach after Tropical Storm Andrea June 7th. I know they are not Whelk or True Tulip egg cases.

I used to think these were anemones but now I'm not so sure. They may be a Zoanthids. Please help me ID these if you can. Thanks!

Sea Star found on St. Pete Beach, FL

09 June 2013 - 07:21 AM

I found this sea star on the beach after Tropical Storm Andrea. It is a common sea star in the Tampa Bay area on the west coast of Florida. 

Is anyone familiar with it, and can tell me what kind it is?

Thank you for your time and expertise :)

This is my first post so any words of wisdom would be appreciated...
