here are the photos you asked about in reply to my earlier message. I have found this animal on 3 occasions, always at Split Solitary Island. [off Coffs Harbour, nthn New South Wales, Australia].
I have attached scans of the 3 specimens. Details are:
UPPER RIGHT: sometime in 1986, no other details recorded
LOWER LEFT: January 1988 at 18 metres
LOWER RIGHT: December 1989 at 21 metres

Thanks very much. From your upper photo, and Erik Schloegl's photo it looks like it prefers this one species of sponge.
