    I have seen these before but can't find my ID. Thinking some kind of tunicate.

    I don't think they are sponges - anyone else have any thoughts?

    Thanks

    They were about 1/4 - 1/2" wide. The info on Strawberry Tunicates I found said they are about 1 1/2" wide, and they don't look quite the same.

    Thanks vincent54 that looks correct. Though there seems to be many kinds of overgrowing tunicates. Interesting.
