Andy Horton Has anybody got a decent picture of Balanophyllia regia I can use in the next issue of Torpedo please? Quickly as the next issue has to be out by the end of the month. (July issue was missed.) http://www.glaucus.org.uk/Torpedo2.htm

George Brown Don't have B. regia but would Leptopsammia pruvoti do?

Andy Horton Not in this instance. I wrote the text first. I usually do it the other way around. I might have to change the text ???

David Kipling I've got some scarlet and golds kicking about, when do you want pics by?

Andy Horton ASAP please. I am compiling the bulletin right now and I did not realise that a pic was not available.

David Kipling OK, I'll have a look tonight. I know I've got a pile of them from the Scillies.

Fiona Crouch There's one on my timeline Sark 2012.

Andy Horton The Torpedo bulletin has been uploaded for August. I have not sent out the circular yet, because I have not double-checked it. http://www.glaucus.org.uk/Torpedo2012August.htm

David Kipling Fiona's link does't work, probably because of permissions.

Andy Horton Hell, I forgot this when putting in the links. I will change mine.

Vasco Ferreira This one is Leptopsammia pruvoti, right? But what are those "tentacles"?

Colin Munro Barnacles

Vasco Ferreira Which barnacles Colin Munro?

Colin Munro Boscia anglica

Vasco Ferreira Thanks Colin!

Colin Munro No worries. They are also common on Caryophyllia cup corals

Keith Hiscock The coral looks much more likely the scarlet and gold star coral Balanophyllia regia - lives in shallowish waters often at the ends of surge gullies. Where and what depth?

Vasco Ferreira It was found in North Portugal, shallow water (around 15 meter) in a gully...

Vasco Ferreira Another photo, not the exact same location, but near.

David Kipling +1 for Balanophyllia regia ...

João Pedro Silva This is casting some doubts on my Leptospammia pruvoti, which are fairly common in some spots with large aggregations in gullies. This is what I think is B. regia from Portugal (in Peniche): http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpsilva1971/5506828989/

David Kipling Yup, that looks like scarlet-and-gold (B. regia).

João Pedro Silva And this Leptopsammia pruvoti from Cape Espichel, Portugal: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpsilva1971/6005496313/

David Kipling One for Keith Hiscock ...he's more used to see Leptosammia than me.

Sue Daly Looks like the barnacle http://www.marlin.ac.uk/speciesinformation.php?speciesID=3781

Sue Daly It lives on cup corals - I've seen it on Devonshire cup corals and Leptopsammia. Sometimes there are four or five on one individual but the coral appears to be fine.

Keith Hiscock Lovely picture of Leptopsammia pruvoti from Cape Espichel.
