"Sand Dollar Glow.” Using a fish-eye lens and an intense back light, it was possible to clearly reveal the Sand Dollar's classic five-fold petal pattern on the top surface through which breathing (gas exchange) takes place. This species is called the "Eccentric Sand Dollar" (Dendraster eccentricus) because its flower pattern is off-center compared to all other sand dollars.

It is also known as the sea-cake, biscuit-urchin, western sand dollar, or Pacific sand dollar.
