Took this picture during our January visit, but haven't been able to identify.

We are thinking a Corallimorph...

I'm thinking the rare but very tasty Kiwi Fruit Anthropod.

Love Cecil's sense of humor!

Have seen these quite often on Bonaire. Look in Paul Human's Reef Coral book under "artichoke coral" and "solitary disk coral". My version of this book (quite a few years old) shows a replica of your photo on page 156 and states "Juveniles, such as pictured specimen, cannot be positively identified", and further that these corals are also "commonly known as 'Solitary Disk Coral' and 'Smooth Disk Coral'".

Always wondered what those were but never bothered to look them up. So they're peyote....

Peyote, glad I didn't smoke it...@ 60FSW would give a whole new meaning to "deep introspect"
