Comment from Gary McDonald on photo #4601
Could be Dendronouts albus or Dendronotus diversicolor. I can't see the frontal veil nor determine the number of cerata in the photo.

Dendronotus albus has frontal veil with 2 pairs of branched processes; general ground color translucent grayish-white; 4–8 pairs of cerata; usually tipped with orange-red.

Dendronotus diversicolor has frontal veil with 3 pairs of branched processes; ground color translucent grayish-white or lilac; 4–5 pairs of cerata.

Comment from Gary McDonald on photo #1513
I'm not positive which of two species this is. Dendronotus albus, has frontal veil with 2 pairs of branched processes; general ground color translucent grayish-white; 4–8 pairs of cerata; and Dendronotus diversicolor, has frontal veil with 3 pairs of branched processes; ground color translucent grayish-white or lilac; 4–5 pairs of cerata. This specimen has 4 pairs of cerata, & I can't see the number of branched processes on the frontal veil.

Probably Dendronotus albus. Dendronotus albus has has 2 pairs of branched processes on the frontal veil and 4-8 pairs of cerata.
The very similar Dendronotus diversicolor has 3 pairs of branched processes on the frontal veil and 4-5 pairs of cerata.
