Abstract: 1. Lipid and glycogen content determinations were done on Myxicola infundibulum, Cirriformia luxuriosa, Halosydna brevisetosa, and Phragmatopoma californica collected form the Monterey Bay area of central California. 2. M. infundibulum and C. luxuriosa were starved for two weeks and their lipid and glycogen contents assayed. 3. M. infundibulum appears to rely on stored lipids at the onset of starvation. 4. C. luxuriosa appears to use some other reserve the onset of starvation.
