[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another unusual strongly colored sea anemone of the genus *Phymanthus*. The neon-like-iridescence was so strong that "impressed" my CoolPix to render a large array of green shades.

These splendid colors disaper if the animal is kept in captivity or preserved. This is why is so important to see these animals alive in their natural habitat. They tell a differents story than museum specimens. This anemone group needs a taxonomic revision.

Hello Adorian,
What an excellent shot of this beauty! Wonderful range of green colours and lovely velvety tentacles. I wonder at what depth you found this? I love it!
Thanks, Ulla
