In total, about 80 species have been identified and an annotated list of sea anemones of the orders Actiniaria, Corallimorpharia, and Zoantharia is provided. This is the first comprehensive report of the species diversity of sea anemones living in the western Bering Sea, based on the recent collections and underwater imaging.
