Dodemansduim / Dead man's thumb (Alcyonium digitatum)

Semi-officially extinct in Dutch waters, but I saw 6 of these this weekend. The only soft coral we have in our cold waters. This one at 12 meters at Schelphoek. The light brown bits are their intestines digesting particles they catch in the currents.
