* On the mid to lower right, a Yellow Spotted Sea Cucumber or Pepino (Stichopus fuscus) rests on encrusting organism, probably a colony of sponges. In the far right center is a small group of Solitary Hydroids (Tubularia sp.). On the left is a pair of Galápagos Sea Fans, one in polyp (Muricea sp. ?). In the upper right corner, one can make out a pair of wine-red Tunicates. Feather Hydroids (Aglaophenia sp ?) can be seen protruding from the left center of the Sea Cucumber.
