The bifurcating arms (typical of A. rubra) threw me off, so I checked Dring’s (1980) monograph (“A rational arrangement of the Clathraceae”, Kew Bulletin 35(1) ), and this comment convinced me: “… the extreme base of the arm, where it springs from the stipe, is very much thinner than it is immediately above this point. Presumably this is correlated with the habit of reflexing the arms and the thin part acts as a hinge.”

It’s not Aseroe rubra.

The same species is shown here in Clives observation.
