Where did you see it?

Kind of looks like Valentinia adherens to me but I've only seen it a couple of times and always stuck on kelp - though it will swim if disturbed.

I stake no claim in it either way, just merely forwarding the message. It wouldn't be the first time I've received a mistaken ident at work.
