Right: Photograph of a football sea squirt Diazona violacea by Ron Crosby.

A colonial sea squirt, individual members of the colony are very similar to the lightbulb sea squirt, but they are joined at the base. Older colonies have a fat column attaching them to, but separating them from the substrate.
