Raumati has had an inundation of these wee shrimp - perhaps 15mm long - for a few days. The beach has smelled fishy now for a couple of days, a local tells me.

Rough guess at the quantity, ca. 1kg of them over a 10m length of beach, evenly spread over the km of beach I walked.

On this morning the gulls were not paying any attention to cleaning up, ref. 5th photo.

None noted further north, eg. Hokio Beach, same morning.

Never seen anything like this before.

In a sea cave in a rock pool that would be close to the high tide mark. The rock pool has water in. This area was dark and these were only spotted when shining a torch around the cave.

When the tide comes in it would pound in, with the water being turbulant as this is on the west coast where a calm day is meter high waves and anything lower is a rare event.

The closest these remind me of is a wandering sea anemone, but I don't think they wander into caves, climb up the walls and find a nice rock pool to rest in.

These three where the only ones seen. Photo taken with the torch shining on them

@jacqui-nz highlighted for me these that were found down on the west coast at Karekare and wondered if they had been spotted at Otaipango - Henderson Bay. Seeing as these were spotted on the west coast I figured that the best place to find these were the Tohe - 90 Mile Beach and as I was going there that day, I kept an eye out for them and found them.

The photos that I have taken are mainly of ones still alive. I choose these photos as they highlight different parts of the animal - although somewhat blurry.

They are under 10mm in diameter, usually around 5 - 7mm. I also observed them swimming by closing the bottom and opening it, similar to how a jellyfish swims.

As we do not have an ID yet for this obs with it being a true jellyfish or maybe a Hydrozoa decided to go with Cnidarians initially as that encompases both Hydrozoa and Scyphozoa.

So here are a few more photos @clinton that may help with an ID or a difinitive class, if these in fact are the same that @jacqui-nz highlighted for me :)

Last photo (have to click the view all) shows them as blobs on the beach.

This is an example of A. splendens s.s. which is a species of mobile sand and which in good conditions can be over 4 m tall (when bearing inflorescences).
