On several dives last week in Kona, Hawaii, I saw these little things sticking out all over the reef. They're in the realm of a half an inch long (maybe 3/4" max). Any idea what they are? The owner of the boat I was diving with said he sees them all the time, but couldn't put his finger on what they're called -- he assumed it's some kind of tunicate.

If you pick it and rub it between your fingers, Neomeris paste makes a fun face-wash.

One of these days I'll remember to taste-sample this alga... it's probably bitter.
