Description

Looks similar to Anthothoe albocincta, but a very large number of light orange tentacles and blue-grey body with lighter coloured stripes and brown oral disc. Column about 10mm high 15mm diameter. Emitted stinging threads from the column when poked (good scientific method ;-). It was growing out horizontally from a rock, and was still under about 0.5m of water at low tide.

I count at least 310 tentacles.

Added a fifth photo taken the day before, the width is maybe greater than 15mm.

Description

The wikipedia page which our taxa page links to suggests that their colour is dependant upon the amount of sunlight they receive, in which case I wouldn't expect to find red and green variations side by side.

Description from Wikipedia

Anthozoa is a class within the phylum Cnidaria. Unlike other cnidarians, anthozoans do not have a medusa stage in their development. Instead, they release sperm and eggs that form a planula, which attaches to some substrate on which the cnidarian grows. Some anthozoans can also reproduce asexually through budding. More than 6,100 species have been described.

No range data available.
