Description:

Found these in rockpool. We think they are corals but can't find any useful id guides. Some are cup shaped, with 2 or 4 small structures in cup, other are not cupped. About 20mm across - attached to floor of rockpool - soft and smooth to the touch. My granddad helped with the description.

I guess no one picked them up

I guess no one picked them up as they were in the invertebrate category. Easily done in the marine environment.
