I can confirm that this is not codium fragile ss nouvae-zelandiae as the conspicuous hairs (that show yellow fuzz on the edge in photos) are missing. (Pg 30 NZ Seaweeds). I thought I should check to see if I had remembered that right as that is what I told @pjd1 on how to distinguish the difference between the NZ species and C. fragile - and I did remember that right :)

However, reading the next page in the book I see that there is C.gracile which lack the hairs and the branches are more slender than C.fragile. I rmember at the time thinking that this was alot skinner than what I usually see and put it down to a different area.

I am now wondering @clinton if this is C.gracile? :D

This obs is a reflection of team work.

Initially spotted in a rock pool, it scurried under a ledge and even though we used sticks we could not get it out.

When we realised that it was mud stone, @pjd1 stomped on the edge and it collapased making the water murky. I gave Theo my glove and he scooped out the mud, eventually finding the crab which we posed for photos.

The last photo shows where it was spotted before the excavations began.
