I was super keen to return to Eastern Beach after the success of our last trip. This time, I wanted to explore the section between the promenade and Limeburners point. Seth and I previously had a lot of luck here a couple of years ago finding ribbon worms, flatworms and a variety of other cool critters.
The above species was identified as either a Nereididee or Terebellidae. I guessed that it may be a terebellid worm so am pretty happy.
This one was fairly easy to identify thanks to the white dots on both sides and white spot on the head. I don’t recall seeing these before and found multiple ones today.
These guys were also plentiful.
I suspected this one was Notoplana australis, which is the same species we saw here before. We didn’t have much luck finding flatworms; my nephew found a couple of these in one location. Unfortunately I had the camera on the wrong setting and couldn’t get clear shorts.
I’m not sure if this flatworm is the Notoplana australis in different lighting, different colouring of Notoplana australis or a complete difeerent species. I’ll make sure to have the camera on the right settings next time.
