|Other common names||-||Synonyms||Halcampoides elongatus|
A burrowing anemone with an elongated column, dirty white or flesh-coloured sometimes suffused with vivid green. The tentacles are very long, even in contraction, tapering to fine points. They are translucent grey-brown in colour often shading to reddish-brown and each one having a more or less extensive white spot near its base.
The taxonomy of the Halcampoides purpurea complex is still confused (Howson & Picton, 1997).
