The Hopkin’s Rose Nudibranch, Okenia rosacea, lives on the coast from Oregon to Baja California. This species was first described in Monterey Bay, which is home to the Hopkins Marine Station. The numerous long appendages covering their bodies are called palliae. Their pink color comes from a chemical called hopkinsiaxanthin, and may come from their bryozoan (colonial invertebrate that grows like coral) food.
