Hi Bill and everyone!
During David Mullins and I 2 hour dive at the north west side the Flinders Reef north or Moreton Island we found under two rocks Moridilla brockii.
You can see the extra long rolled cerata which are white in these animals. They do unroll and thrash aroud when disturbed!
Locality: Flinders Reef, Moreton Island, 16 m, Queensland, Australia, Pacific Ocean, 15 November 2008, Subtidal. Length: 50-55 mm. Photographer: Gary Cobb and David Mullins.

Thanks Gary & Dave,
Glad you saw the classic 'cerata waving' - it can be quite a spectacular display which we hypothesise is a defensive display.
