Colonies of Electra pilosa

Electra pilosa is a bryozoan. Bryozoans are colonial animals, and each individual unit, or zooid, remains in contact with others through pores. Colonies of Electra pilosa grow on several algae on the lower shore, sometimes as irregular, but here as stellate shapes a couple of cm across.

courtesy visit

Goodness Jo - I'd quite forgotten you are a poster too!'-
Why I had not 'done' the courtesy of an agreement here I cannot say - but I'm sorry to have taken so long.
Now go here

OK You've done one and it worked. Isn't that great. Ignore this one for now

Jo, you are invited to submit this post to project.
Via Edit place a tag next to Marine, with the coma, ProjectM1. I hope it will autoload to the project.
It is the very early stage of the project and may change out of all proportion in the coming months.
We few are looking for Marine Invertebrate posts with two or more excellent photos (I'll be the judge of that) and some reasonable descriptive text, which we may ask you to boost.
You need not respond here, add the Tag if you wish, simply ignore us if you don't want to participate.

Is a pro-forma I have sent to only one poster so far, explaining that it is an experiment. I will do a few more once we know that Tags are working. Help me compile a list - ChrisMcA, Paula etc...but we might need to be fairly strict about quality of photos.
