Thanks Leslie. That's very helpful. I've had a root around and it's quite hard to pin it down to a precise species based on what's on the net. cheers

Gotta remember that a lot of the distinguishing characters for many animals are internal or microscopic. With anemones for example, the arrangement of the internal membranes is often crucial at both species & generic level, also the structure of the nematocysts. Sometimes there's just no way to identify them from images.
