Sea mat is a colony-forming polyp, which looks like a brown, rough crust covered in a shroud of white or pink down. That down is formed by the tentacles of the polyps. Sea mat grows on stones or ship wrecks, where there is plenty of flowing water. It is also often found on snail shells inhabited by hermit crabs.
