Description

A few of these at the beach at the Kaituna River mouth. No other notable washup either here or at Maketu foreshore except the barnacles at https://inaturalist.nz/observations/raewyna which I haven't added to GoSea because I figure it's probably local flotsam.

Description

I was surprised that these get so large. There was a pair quite close to shore, they would point towards me and when I tried to get close they shot off. Impossible to get close to.
Also I saw more smaller ones and there was a tiny one swimming with them, confirming the tiny ones are most likely the same species.

~25cm long

Description

Found still moving (barely) on the beach. 1.5 hours later (last 3 pics) it was no longer moving and looked like it had been split open by a gull. Perhaps M. maorum due to the white spots? The spots were much more obvious in person unfortunately.
