Do

Good pic, see mine above
Do you have lots of these? They seem to live in colonies - under stones mainly.
We are, so far, the only two postings.

Discus (Gonyodiscus) rotundatus

There are other postings under Discus (Gonyodiscus) rotundatus

Aha yes...

I kinda knew that (remembered) but only mine appeared in other Observations.
It appears then that this should be Discus (Gonyodiscus) rotundatus, then many others would appear.
As that is the case I have put up the other ID - I am SLOWLY learning.
Thanks Chris

Just to reiterate

Just to reiterate, both names are correct, some people include the sub-genus (in brackets) others do not. In any case both names link to NBN records.

time

Yes. I do think it's time for the NBN link to go to one of the two site updates - the existing one is unwieldy.
