Wondered if it was a very young Brain anemone ? Under a rock at Lennards.

I think from the colouring it is likely to be Phlyctenactis tuberculosa, the swimming anemone, but in this case attached. P australis is supposed to have a blue-grey column

Thanks Jenny,
I know I have seen the bluey grey column of Brain Anemone but because it was attached i thought it would have been one ,was very small .
