Lumpy shroom?

This thing popped out of the rock one day looking like a common old mushroom. Then it grew all these bumps...overnight. Is it just a mushroom...or something else?

Hmmm, looks like a lumpy shroom to me, but that isn't necessarily the case. Can you get a better pic? Perhaps when the daylights are on? It could be a small majano anemone, but it doesn't look quite right.

Looks like a hairy mushroom to me. Almost resembles a Ricordia with the bubble shaped tenticles. I'll stay with a hairy 'shroom until a better pic/description show up.

better pic

Here's a better pic...I hope. There are some smaller ones that seem to be developing into the same thing. On the off chance that it might be some kind of anemone, I offered it a small piece of krill. Not interested. I have, a couple of times, seen it close up like a zoanthid at night. Doesn't do it every night though.

I, too, gotta go with some type of bumpy shroom.

My first thought was a Ricordea yuma. Need a better picture though.
