Lovely shot showing the foot and oral tentacles.

Lovely bryozoan, but i am not sure it has a name! The Noumea is NOT feeding on it!

Looks live a very small juvenile. Great.

This looks like Noumea flava to me; bright yellow, red margin, and it appears the mantle is constricted centrally. And yellow rhinophores of course; Noumea laboutie has red rhinophores and gills.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #2190
The blood-red marginal band is thickened into numerous elongate blotches, a bit like a string of small widely-spaced beads. See “Undersea Jewels” page 171.
