Author's notes

Or it might be S. papillosa. Thanks for the ID Michael. I thought at first this had strange milky eyes, but on one photo I got it with its eyes fully opened, so I could see the other images are just with its eyelids closed. Amazing how its colour is so similar to the encrusting algae just under the Wharf.
