    The bubble tip anemone is usually attached deeply in crevices or hidden in holes in reef, such that only the emergent tentacles are visible. Each tentacle is brown in colour and inflated near the end, with a white band near terminus, commonly with a red tip. Column is brownish to pinkish in colour and is smooth; oral disc broader than pedal disc. Column is without verrucae; gradually flared from the small pedal disc. Oral disc is brown in colour, same as tentacles. Tentacles collapse when disturbed.
