Going out on a limb a bit here, but this looks somewhat similar to other examples of epiphytic Bryzoa I can see online.

My earlier observation that these are prone to stranding on a dodge tide has been affirmed ... I would have thrown-back upwards of 100 today.

There were numerous strands (colonies) of Hydrozoa embedded in this clump of Sea Nymph.
I've assumed that the objects in image #3 are newly-formed colonies ... but they may be something else entirely.

Even allowing for the significant degradation, I can't match this to any previous find.
In particular, the thickness of the shell and relatively small inner cavity differentiate it.

A claw sticking out of the sand was the only sign that underneath was a crab that had paid the price for choosing to dig-in rather than retreat with the tide!

I thought this may have been another Prion. It has similarities to the previous one I found (see https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/28979538) but the colouring is distinctly different.
I expect it's in the same family though.

Another partial specimen of the mysterious egg cluster. This time I was able to get an image of the contents (image #3) hoping that might help the process of identification.
(Apologies for large image size but I wanted to retain as much detail as possible).

Having recently discovered the importance of 'epiphytes' and their role in sea grass health, I decided to go looking for some.
Using the following web site as a reference, I believe the little white stalks growing on this plant are Hydrozoa - http://www.nzepiphytenetwork.org/blog/marine-epiphytes
But I could be wrong ... !

This appears to the right ID, however I've only ever heard them referred to as Slimy Mackerel.
They appear just before Christmas each year and are everywhere for a couple of months. However its rare (although not impossible) to catch one during the colder months of the year.
