Nice to be able to show @pjd1 this species of brittle star. Thbe second photo has the arm of the Ophionereis fasciata for size comparrision.

Found under a rock in the low intertidal zone.

(Once again ignore the location as this was not found on the coastal walk track amoung rawiri but that is what the gps thinks.)

I think this is Ophioceres huttoni although it is one colour, but taht could be because it may be a juvenile.
