Bob if you find it I'm betting it's a snail but if not you still have to know
what you are looking for to figure out how to trap it. Grape caulerpa is my
second favorite Caulerpa, I can collect two local variants of C. poliferia.
One grow is tight clumps in the mud and the other grows in very tough strings
on rocks in the surf zone on the local jetties. The rock growing type has
smaller more round leaves. I like the mud type because it is reluctant to
grow on rocks and sticks to the sand bottom and grows in nice thick clumps. I
like C. poliferia for refugiums and algae filters.
