Washed ashore

Just a quick note that with this recent storm, many interesting pelagic animals have washed ashore.

Do you remember the pyrosomes from 2014?  Quite a few are appearing on the beaches now.

For a description and more information about pyrosomes, review the post from 8 December 2014.

And stay tuned for more interesting discoveries!

I really appreciated having seen this post yesterday because today I found several of these guys in the tide pools at Kibesillah Hill! Very cool!

Hi, Megan! Thanks for the comment -- good to know that pyrosomes are also showing up in Mendocino County.
