''Anthopleura elegantissima'', also known as the aggregating anemone or clonal anemone, is the most abundant species of sea anemone found on rocky, tide swept shores along the Pacific coast of North America. This cnidarian hosts endosymbiotic algae called zooxanthellae that contribute substantially to primary productivity in the intertidal zone. ''A. elegantissima'' has become a model organism for the study of temperate cnidarian-algal symbioses.
