In addition to sea star disease observations, observations of disease in the purple sea urchin (Strongylocentrotus purpuratus) can now be reported (as of December, 2014). Note that prior to December 2014, there are no observations for S. purpuratus on the map. For species other than S. purpuratus observations should be recorded in the 'Additional Information' section of the disease observation log.
