About Corinactus Photo.com
The word "corinactus" is a variation on the spelling of a beautiful and delicate anemone that lives in the coastal waters off Marin County, California all the way to San Martin Is., Baja, California. The official name of this animal is Corynactis californica. The maximum diameter reached is approximately 2 cm (0.8 in). It comes in many different shades. This reddish pink is common around the Channel Islands near Santa Barbara. One of the prominent features of this colonial animal is the white bulbous tip (club-tipped or capitate). I chose the name for its uniqueness and appreciation from my more than 25 years diving and underwater photography experience. I share more of my photos with you in my gallery. Enjoy.
