Description

No idea what this is. It was hard, felt rough and calcified like coral. Not at all soft like sponge or tunicate, and tiny 'polyps' with dark centers and 'hairs' are visible. About 1" across and 1/2" high. Growing among tunicates on the underside of a float at the dock. Perhaps something introduced?

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.
