Labidiaster annulatus is a large, multi-armed sea star common in moderate depths along the Antarctic Peninsula and off the islands of the Scotia Arc. Analyses by frequency of occurrence and several volumetric methods of stomach contents from 194 individuals from South Georgia, the South Sandwich Islands, and the Antarctic Peninsula show L. annulatus is an active and opportunistic predator and scavenger on prey from at least 10 phyla. Most common prey are euphausiids and amphipods which are… Expand
