Mytilus californianus (California mussel), Pollicipes polymerus (Goose Barnacle or Goose Neck Barnacle)

Probably California Mussels (Mytilus californiensis), growing in with Leaf Barnacle (Pollicipes polymerus). These two spieces usually have large homogenous colonies - so it looks like the Mussels are overgrowing the Barnacle colony.
