Actinia equina (Beadlet anemone, AE1) (equina_smartden.arrow4.noredun)

About Actinia equina

Actinia equina The beadlet anemone (Actinia equina (L.)) is one of the most familiar organisms of the North European intertidal zone. Once considered a single, morphologically variable species across northern Europe, it is now recognised as one member of a variable species complex.[1]

Its range extends to the Mediterranean Sea, and along the Atlantic coast of Africa as far south as South Africa. Actinia equina can be found both in exposed and sheltered situations. It is highly adapted to the intertidal zone as it can tolerate both high temperatures and desiccation.[2]
