Solitary pink posy swaying to and fro’ in a rock pool. It appears to grow out off a patch of pink crust with a white edge. The tree-like fronds are pink with with white tips and darker stems. Like Thumbelina, Corallina is no bigger than my thumb. App’ 3cm tall. A second pink patch without a white rim has formed in the same pool (photo 2). Hopefully a sign of more to come.
