    Eish,

    I'm getting a complex, I feel terrible that it seems most of my posts are about things I've found and needing ID ....

    Ok, I'm over it ...

    Here's another one for ya with experience/thick books/etc ....

    When I first saw it I thought I'd been taken for a ride and that this piece of live rock had been kept out of the water and had a moth or something make a cocoon on the rock .... thing is it opens and closes .... So bang goes that theory .... It's hard, about 25-30mm long, cylindrical like an, uhm, mussle I guess, has a wierd pattern on it ....

    Whatcha think, excuse the curry flavoured lighting again .....
