Evasterias troschelii ()

Mottled Star, sometimes called Troschel's Sea Star or Evasterias troschelii to it's friends. This particular one was hiding on the underside of a Lewis's Moonsnail egg collar - sand, eggs and mucus. This star is also a shellfish eater - the white spots on the arm tips are apparently a primitive eye.
