Ceratosoma tenue from sthn Queensland

October 12, 2007
From: Gary Cobb

Hi Bill and everyone,
After reading Bruce's entry on Ceratosoma tenue feeding I thought you might like to see some records of this species found here at Old Woman Island and the Trench just off Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast.

Locality: Mooloolaba, Sunshine Coast, 12-18 m, Queensland, Australia, Pacific Ocean, 30 June 2007, Subtidal. Length: 60-120 mm. Photographer: Gary Cobb.

Cheers
Gary Cobb

Thanks Gary,
The animal in the middle photo seems to be taking more than just a passing interest in the blue sponge. It's a bit difficult to see enough detail in the arrangement of the fibres, but I suspect it may be a dysideid sponge, which would match Bruce Wilkie's observations and the bluish sponge in Mike Krampf's message [#20164 ].

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
