Photo of Animalia: species: Amphimetra tessellata (Lizard Island Field Guide)

Amphimetra tessellata at Watson's Bay, Lizard Island, on soft bottom away from reefs. Note relatively long cirri with strong spines on distal segments. There is a galatheid crab sheltering among the cirri and a brittlestar (Ophiothrix (Acanthophiothrix) proteus) clinging to the arm bases.
