Galeolaria

Galeolaria are filter-feeding worms that live in densely packed calcareous tubes. The worms stay permanently in these tubes, eating the nutrient particles from the water around them. Their black feeding tentacles pop out when covered with water. Commonly incorrectly called ‘Sydney Coral’, Galeolaria is a worm living in a shell casing, not a coral.
