New Species Added for the Blue Fleet

The nudibranch Fiona pinnata is part of the blue fleet and there is one record of it found by @indeynz at Tapotupotu

The floatsman crab (Planes cyaneus) and the drifter crab (Planes marinus) are pelagic and also a part of the Blue Fleet, so I have added these to the project.

Flotsam Crab Planes cyaneus

We do not have many records of them, mainly at home and also one obs from Anawhata Beach recorded by @jacqui-nz

Something new to look out for :)

We know that the whole of the blue fleet landed in NZ Feb 2016 so this project is for recording other Blue Fleet critter sightings so we can monitor when the whole fleet lands again.
