Sea Anemones

Here is a little compilation of anemones from our last underwater expedition. Unfortunately I don’t really have time to take “good pictures”, because we are actually working while diving ;) We do make a complete census of the full benthic invertebrate community. Since many years these expeditions add more and more data to the knowledge about the huge ford zone of the Chilean Patagonia.
These pictures are part of the sampling or recording process of the species we find. Many of them are known. But is is rather common to find new species here in the region, of basically every taxon. Since my boss is an anemone specialist, I obviously get to see a lot of them ;)
