Unknown on tide line

Observed: 18th May 2012 By: msouter

Strange item found on the tide line. Looked initially as intestines, but appears to be constructed like a bunch of bananas. Small black spots within the strands may be eggs? 5 pence piece in photo for scale.

Species interactions

No interactions present.

as we have agreement....

... would be good to edit and move to invertebrates - will get other iSpotters who will input.

I have just formed my own post here As usual I checked other Observation before deciding on an ID
I would dearly like to know how it is possible to be certain that these are forbesi (or vulgaris) eggs Graham. I am certain there will be differences but assume they might need very careful examination, so is probably not possible via a single photo.
I was hoping that my intervention might, somehow, have triggered the Correct Group (Invertebrate)
