This light yellow sponge taxon is a regular seasonal occurrence early in warm season in the Carrickalinga area wherever sub-tidal rocks occur.Very fast growing,it appears almost overnight and is all but absent only a matter of weeks, or a month or 2 at most,later.

SUBJECT is obviously NOT THE CRAB @ centre,it is a small dull red anemone on upper R in frame(on which the red rock crab appears to be directing its gaze but I'd say that's not the crab's intent). Possibly a young Waratah Anemone.

At ~centre is a fairly small drab ,rutted shell with spire facing viewer making ID harder.I assume the mollusc egg capsules closely associated with it are no coincidence,it probably laid them while tide was fully out.Shallow sub-tidal.
