Note on Eulalia
Eulalia viridis is not is not an intertidal species around the UK, it is a northern species, its limit within UK waters is the southern part of the North Sea. The species seen intertidally in the UK is Eulalia clavigera. The name Eulalia sp. 'Emits Yellow Muscus A' is a temporary name for a species yet to be published, the species can be found on the extreme lowershore under rocks, in crevices and around kelp holdfasts and in fouling on marinas. Its current limit in the UK is Mounts Bay, Cornwall. It produces large amounts of bright yellow mucus on disturbance, Eulalia clavigera produces transparent mucus.
