Thanks very much for this record. Your animal certainly looks like what is identified in the Nth Pacific as Adalaria proxima but I can't find a reference to anyone actually checking out its anatomy to confirm the identification, If someone has a reference I would be grateful. It certainly has the 'starburst' arrangement of spicules at the base which are considered characteristic of the species. If it is A. proxima, I think this is the first record from Korea. I note that Rie Nakano (2004) records it from Japan.
Perhaps Sandra Millen, who has studied these animals in some detail from the Nth Pacific has a comment to make?
