Celleporaria nodulosa (Busk, 1881)

Specimen from Sydney, New South Wales.

Description from Busk, 1881. This description was omitted from the final "Challenger" Report.
In 1884, the same description with minor modifications was listed under the name
Cellepora tuberculata. As a result, there is no figure for the original C. nodulosa.
I have examined the type specimen in the Natural History Museum,
and I believe it corresponds with the species in the SEM. This species is fairly common on the east coast of Australia]
