Descripción

Attracted to night light near rear of north dunes. This species usually has a fine wing tremor present when it has settled on a surface or inert object, ie it is seldom. completely motionless, being restless and often making brief but rapid erratic flights from spot to spot around the light to which it was attracted.

Hay,Jock,good Point[??attempt at lol...?!]:if you thought my repetitive posting of different examples of this common species was tedious,you're right.But,subjects were scarce so I imaged more sweep and zebbies than I usually would!

Adult pair that emerged at dusk,along with others in what had seemed like habitat devoid of the species while ambient light was stronger.

Several in crevice at dusk.As previously noted,I'm not confident of taxon level here,but am aware of some variability morphologically for the suggested species.

2nd photo is just non-cropped version of 1st.
Quite a few seen as dusk approached but probably not as plentiful as the more cryptic Speckled Rock Anemones,per a recent submission from same late snorkel
(Both species usually invisible here in daylight hours but emerge as ambient light fails,into night)

Descripción

Poor views,with zebrafish and sweep in some:)
On this late snorkel there was a school of mature adult mullet hanging around,but I could only get close enough for images during swell sets,at which time the normally good viz of ~10 m would drop to less than 5 m.(This despite full tide and very calm seas)

Subject obvious.
In one photo an inquisitive yet shy rock crab (Ozius truncatus;see next submission)is equally obvious,well away from the anemone.
[In the other pics only one claw can be readily discerned,as the crab is behind the anemone but it's L pincer arm reaches to viewers' R side of anemone]

In foreground mainly (Nb the rubbish (old bottles etc) is a further example of the junk under and around the earlier submission of this deep pit in rear aspect of the north dunes about 150 metres north of the jetty. In that submission the subject was a large Myoporum insulare tree but I commented on the amount of rubbish, mostly many decades old, at the same site:)

Small dull red-brown scallop-like bivalve .Only the one specimen seen here on this outing [NB:images are as I found it,resting intact on sand,apparently alive and well but I didn't handle it or examine it at all so I can't be sure it wasn't diseased,or being preyed upon by something hidden beneath it e.g. a gastropod drilling into it's lower valve] In very shallow tide pool, with rising tide, in almost full sunlight.

Poor pics [2nd photo only shows caudal fin!] of one adult seen on a swalkel(finless snorkel) at the Lady Bay Reef Watch intertidal reef platform monitoring site.Rising tide,low swells causing viz to drop rapidly.
I was rather surprised to find this full adult mid winter, in the same very shallow ledge I'd seen a small aggregation in the warm season just passed.
