Tentative species but genus suggestion probably correct. The remains of this very large moth, found almost beneath the nest of a pair of tawny frogmouths (nest currently occupied by one adult and one baby see next observation).
So I guess the moth made a nice main course last night!
(NB:the nest is in a large Eucalyptus camaldulensis local provenance).

Unusual 4-armed morph of this 5-armed species. Found in typical position on open sandy substrate.Snorkel,depth here ~2.5-3 m.Most of the immediate surrounds consisted of low profile rock reef ,fields of brown algae(mostly Scaberia agardhii) and sea-grass meadows (Posidonia and Amphibolis and a few lush,bright areas of Zostera-like 'eel-grass,but we weren't certain if those were indeed Zostera),with a few patches of moderately large rocks and boulders closer to shore. There were relatively few small areas of clean bare sand like in the above pics, in the limited area of rocky coastline we covered on this snorkel)

The worm between the crab and the fish. They are extremely common here, but nobody seems to know what they are. They emerge from sand burrows and extend quite some distance, maybe a meter or more with transparent, spotted, gelatinous bodies. If disturbed they will retreat to their burrow. The crab appeared quite happy to make a meal of this one after it stepped on it and realised it was there. The Goatfish showed no interest in it.

[*May be a duplicate, or was submitted in a MLSSA bulk upload]
Old low res slide scan, taken ~10 metres west of shoreward end of Kingscote Jetty (=near the remains of the old jetty,with it's submerged stumps) on scuba. (Date very uncertain, but is in my old hard cc dive logs, ho hum/apologies again).
There were a number of these fanworm-like animals that would slowly emerge and spread their intricate fans when left alone but would instantly withdraw into their quite thick, solid looking tubes at the slightest disturbance including strobe flashes. And the tubes themselves would often retract partly or even fully into the silty, muddy ,very soft sediment that was the main bottom type right there.

Two grossly identical shrimps as handnet bycatch when wading in seagrass meadows in very shallow subtidal pools on the intertidal section of the platform reef at Lady Bay (@ the Reef Watch intertidal monitoring site).Outgoing tide. Hoping to document a variety of small pipefish, Clingfish, gobies and suchlike.
Each Shrimp is about 20 to 22mm long.

Nb:-FWIW we netted only 2 bony fish.Both were juvenile Pugnose pipefish,each about 60 mm TL. Unfortunately I'd left my Android phone at home and couldn't photograph the pipefish prior release at Lady Bay in the same pools they were netted in.(But I inspected them carefully wearing my best prescription glasses and am certain they were young Pugnose and not young Verco's etc).

When I netted the first of these shrimps I thought I had got an unusual little Clingfish because it had the same basic dorsal profile and was the colour of speckled sand on top with thin but distinct dark brown stripe along the full length of the ventral aspect on each side. Making it ideal for cryptism when aligned along dead seagrass blades, fucoid brown algae etc over sandy bottom. Then I saw it spread it's legs (which had initially been recessed or held folded flat against the sides or underside) and my disappointment was palpable.
No undescribed species of grass Clingfish, merely a Shrimp displaying convergent evolution 🤨(!)

Image 1 is essentially as found, protruding from sand in a mildly raised area of the inland aspect of the swale in the Normanville North Dunes.
Images 2-4 are to assist taxon ID via viewing from different angles.

*The final 2 images are included because for me the location of this long dead valve (and I saw no evidence of its being part of a midden) tells one of 2 possible stories.
Perhaps it really was from an aboriginal midden (certainly the dunes swale had many and some remain relatively intact but others have been destroyed or spread widely by European settlement activities eg grazing, sandmining).Or, and I think this is more likely, the oyster valve was discarded by early settlers. Further information as follows.
Image 5 is taken with me standing exactly where I found it (cf Image 1) and I am facing roughly due west (actually closer to wnw).Image 6 is as for Image 5 but I am facing roughly due east. In the lower background you can just make out the leaves of the stunted cultivated fig tree which was planted more than a century ago on the inland side of the crest of the secondary dune by early Europeans. This is known to be a planted (not selfset) exotic edible fig because #1 it is apparently the only such fig tree in the Northern Normanville dunes #2 it is within metres of the now killed massive old olive trees(the huge stumps remain at ground level following decades of cutting swabbing drilling and filling) that were also planted, in the rear aspect of the dunes, on each side of the underground Morse code cable. That traversed the dunes at this exact location, before running under the beach then across GSV to Kingscote KI(laid circa late 1860s or 1870s).It served as communication between Normanville police station(at the time Normanville was the SW Fleurieu's relay outpost from Adelaide CBD) and Kingscote ,initially primarily for early alerting about shipwrecks off KI so help could be sent from eg Port Adelaide .
So, my point is that the men who manned the small hut in the rear of the dunes to maintain the cable's function and possibly also look for ships at risk of being wrecked in Yankalilla Bay during onshore gales may have collected some oysters to eat, or maybe just as fertiliser for the fruit trees they'd planted.
It is known(as I understand, anyway) that the inshore shellfish reefs of parts of Yankalilla Bay were harvested thus destroyed by dredging in a similar manner to virtually all similar shellfish reefs in southern Australia.
I'm not up to speed on what were the main shellfish eaten by the Kaurna here so I don't know if Ostrea angasi is commonly found in Kaurna middens in Yankalilla Bay (obviously at Goolwa pipi were a major component but pipi don't occur naturally here in Yankalilla Bay).
Usual apologies for the length of the above comments.

Taxon suggested by inat. I found this unusual small moth in some cut firewood. Unusual because it behaved as follows. It would walk quickly towards shelter and shade when placed on flat stone paving,and when "running " in this way it always kept it's wings closed, making it quite cryptic even on a fairly uniform background. But when it stopped moving forward (which it did suddenly ie it only had 2 speeds, zero and fast) within a second or two it would suddenly erect all wings vertically, so seen from above it would seem to have disappeared even though it was still there just sitting quietly. This behaviour may be quite common in some moth taxa, but I haven't seen it much myself. I suppose it is normally a nocturnally active species and has evolved this diurnal behaviour to avoid predation when it's hiding place diurnally is uncovered eg by birds that scratch ground litter such as Bassian Thrushes and Eurasian Blackbirds)

At centre of image 1.
A few seen this dive under the old Jetty.
In both images but more clearly in image 2 can be seen a juvenile Blackspotted Wrasse slightly to L of and below the subject sharpnose weed whiting.
I think the wrasse is probably hosting the weed whiting client, because the weed whiting lingered at this spot for surprisingly long time, and even seems to have adopted client pose.
Juvenile Blackspotted Wrasse are well known facultative cleaning hosts, but I have generally assumed their clients would be bigger than them. I have never witnessed any Sharpnose Weed Whiting being cleaned-by WCCs or any other known hosts, although I've seen Sharpnose WWs on other dives at Rapid Bay that were behaving in similar fashion to the above,making me suspect that they were in client mode.
So, while the above does not prove that juvenile Blackspotted Wrasse clean Sharpnose Weed Whiting, I am increasingly sure they do.
