Comments : This befuddled me for some time, but we saw them all over the muddy/sandy bay bottom up at God's Pocket. They react slowly when harassed, and slowly withdraw into the mud. Otherwise, they don't seem to do much except look very alien. This genus is not well described, and I had a hard time finding any information about them.
