Comprehensive Description

Read full entry
The striped anemone, Haliplanella lineata, is a small, greenish anemone with white or orange stripes and usually 50-60 (and as many as 100) fully retractile, transparent or slightly colored tentacles. The body is smooth and cylindrical (Eldredge and Smith 2001).A number of distinct morphs of this species, based on body color and stripe pattern were identified several decades ago, although these may actually represent points along a gradient in appearance (Uchida 1932, Shick and Lamb 1977).
