This species, described by Catherine McFadden and Eric Hochberg in 2003, sometimes looks like a small, lumpy wad of gum and can be found under intertidal ledges and cobbles in central California. When prodded it can completely retract its polyps into the common colony mass leaving a mostly smooth surface. This colony was about 20 mm wide, and the polyps were only partially contracted. The nudibranch Tritonia festiva preys on the polyps of this species.
