Anemone, Halcampa arctica
12 tentacle anemone. The animal is Halcampa arctica (sometimes confused with/possibly synonymous with H. duodecimcirrata). It is not an Edwardsia—it’s a member of another family, Halcampidae. Both groups are burrowers, so this confusion is common. The identification in Jones and Gates 2010 is incorrect.
