Abstract
Anemones of the California coast, collected from November 1960 to March 1961, were compared with respect to their toxicity. Aqueous extracts of the anemones were dialyzed and assayed by intraperitoneal injection to mice, and the survival times of the injected mice were compared. The extracts of Anthopleura elegantissima and A. xanthogrammica were by far more toxic than those of Metridium senile, Corynactis californica, Tealia crassicornis, T. lofotensis, and T. coriacea. The differences in potencies of the extra cts may indicate species variations m (1) toxicity, (2) efficiency of the extraction method, or (3) both.
