Lucky shot of it using a huge jet of water from its siphon to shoot completely out of the water (and the dish)! It had been sulking in the dish after being captured by a group of students; see rock-coloration in second photo. The third photo shows it going back to sulking after its unsuccessful escape from the paparazzi.

I found another one! This time bigger, fewer edge chips, and with both halves! Also in sea pork (tunicate). Dpom's going to clean it up, so stay tuned for an update photo.
