Hi Guys,

I would appreciate your help with this strange creature. It is a frame capture from a video film. Taken on a muck dive Ambon, Indonesia, during the day in about 10m of water. It appears to be free moving and could slightly change its shape.

The appearance at the top suggests an anemone, but I have not been able to identify it.

Thanks for your help.

Roger

Hi Nick,

Thanks for that, it looks like you nailed it. I suppose with it being a day shot it is closed up. The night time images on the net of Alicia mirabilis look very impressive, shame i cannot go back and look for it on a night dive.
