Luzon Island, Philippines
These tunicates are about 1 1/2 inches in length. In the Philippines, it's common to see five or more of these blue tunicates in small colony-like formations. When disturbed, tunicates draw up the incurrent and excurrent apertures, much like a drawstring around the rim of a bag.
