Another first for me. Finally after years of diving I have finally found Veronica.

I called her Veronica as it is an anagram of Verconia verconis, her real name.

She has no common name as is the case with most of our beautifully weird and wonderful sea critters. Unless they are commercially significant or in the popular mind then creatures like Veronica never get a simple name, forever to be known only by some tongue twisting phrase of Latin.

Another wonderful find under Port Hughes Jetty, South Australia.
