Islas Galápagos, Ecuador, South America


* In this perspective of the habitat of the last image, Gorgonian Sea Fans (Muricea sp. ?) appear on the left center.  On the upper right is the unidentified soft coral .  On the surface of the enclosing boulders, in the background, are white, brown, and red sponges, also wine-red tests of Foraminifera (?).   In the upper left are white sponges, and some other white organism, perhaps a Byrozoan.
