I am so sad to see news of the Forum's closure!! I really enjoyed looking through the photos and posts.
I know you are doing this on your spare time but would like to send this picture of what looks like a Reticulidia fungia but with two sets of rhinopores and all the photos I have seen so far only have one pair. Is this normal?

I assume this photo is from East Timor? The problems with the Forum are not as yet resolved but I am hoping to spend some time on it each week.
This is indeed Reticulidia fungia. The 'double' rhinophores are a developmental mistake. Have a look at the abnormalities page where I have listed the many photos we now have of such abnormalities.
