Are you sure it's not Valonia? or is that the same thing - never heard it called that in the UK

It looks like what we here call "bubble algae." I don't think it's caulerpa, but I doubt anyone could tell you for sure from that photo. Any chance you could get a clearer one?

Looks more like bubble algae to me. Nasty stuff if it is.

If you do pop it, it will spread, if you want to get rid - if poss remove the rock its on and gently twist it off.
