Live Rock Hitchhiker ID

Got this little critter on some live Rock I just purchased. Green and white short tentacles. I think its some type of anemone but I'm not sure? Can someone ID this Hitchhicker for me?

Thanks in Advance

Chris

The tentacles are very short and pointy, and they are only on the outer edge. Just a clear membrane in the center. When fully open its about the size of a quarter, and will shrink at time to about the size of a dime. It will attach and eat frozen the Plankton that I give to my other anemones...

Not sure then. It looks like it could be a type of turtle grass or crab anemone (Calliactis sp). Might just have to wait for it to get a bit larger

Where did the rock originate from?

Cheers
Steve
