From: Bill Rudman

To accompany Yuji Fujie's recent message [#15804] here is a photo of a specimen of Embletonia gracilis from New Caledonia.

Locality: Grand Récif de Koumac, outer Barrier Reef, New Caledonia, 20°40'S, 164°11.2'E, 12m,  Outside of reef, 7 October 1993, 30mm long alive, AM C200375. Photos: Bill Rudman

It shows how the cerata, and the four branches can extend and contract, quite considerably.
Best wishes
