Description

Detrital line of dead seagrass, mostly this genus (with some Amphibolis and algae, as usual), along the sandy long-shore channel that now exists along most of the North Beach , especially near the jetty, van park, SLSC, kiosk and general foreshore precinct.

Important Note; While the subject drift dead tape-weed in image is usually a normal seasonal occurrence, the virtual absence of living seagrasses right on the 'blue line' is not.
This absence is perennial now (as I can vouch from frequent snorkels and a fair few shore dives over many years including all 4 seasons). Living seagrass beds along the edges of the * 'Blue Line' have retreated on average many metres seaward. (*Re 'Blue Line'; inshore limit of vegetated bottom where hard substrate meets littoral zone sand; the colloquial name originally referred to the line where perennial sea-grass meadows met clean white inshore sand, with minimal change in depth on either side of the line. While the term remains in popular use, at this location it is actually a brown-green-grey line, rendered thus by the near- absence of flowering marine plants ,which have been replaced by varying mixtures of bare grey undercut rocky shelf, canopy brown fucoid algae (including Caulocystis Cystophora and Sargassum) and turf algae, various types of the latter usually being highly seasonal in nature.
A long-shore scarp now exists, where wave action has scoured a gutter or trench which can vary seasonally from ~0.5 to @ least 1 metre depth but is a permanent anthropogenic feature.
One which will further accelerate sand loss from Normanville's beaches.

Only photo, sorry. 10 years ago, no measurements either.
Originally thought was Kosciuscola sp nymph. Now consider this one a flightless adult.
As a result of this discussion:
https://inaturalist.ala.org.au/observations/65722001
I looked into it again and suggested this genus.
@robert_read asked me to post ours, also in SA (Adelaide Hills), to offer support for a range extension of this genus.
We need to consider it's been accidentally & recently introduced by humans.
There aren't matching eco-systems in place between here & their known range in the east of Victoria & NSW for it to have migrated naturally.
@matthew_connors & @streglystendec
For your interest
I have one more, with even less diagnostic detail coming, from a year after:

Description

These delicate,diminutive red feeding tentacles protruded as clumped loci in high densities wherever the bottom was fairly bare i.e. from ankle depth down to ~1-3 m,which was generally where the bottom became heavily blanketed by dense mats of finely branched unattached silty green and brown algae[ +some spaghetti bryozoans were present in this sludgy squelchy mix],mostly like dirty cotton-wool but with occasional clumps of several Caulerpa taxa.
So,this in-faunal animal,presumably a type of worm given the obvious casts,favours open,shallow,silty/sandy/muddy/gritty bottom in sheltered marine and estuarine waters.
Unless one looks closely the light red filaments can easily be mistaken for 'turf' red algae.
Garden Island is almost entirely surrounded by Grey Mangroves,BTW.
Where I snorkelled( NB:the day's MLSSA activity primarily involved kayaking but I declined,for once. The days are short in mid-life!) is a popular shore based recreational fishing spot,too,which would increase the quantity of suspended food e.g. berley in the vicinity. I've seen these worms before,but never in such densities.

Edited 8 June 2020: The majority of these are Coxiella glauerti, but that name was missing from iNat. Has recently been added, after flagging. Any assistance with confirmation appreciated.
See https://keys.lucidcentral.org/keys/v3/freshwater_molluscs/Freshwater_Oct18/Media/Html/coxiella_coxiella_glauerti.htm for description. There are some smaller pink Coxiella striata scattered amongst the larger Coxiella glauerti.
The larger salt lake snails fit the description for C glauerti because they reach up to 13mm long (quite a lot larger than Coxiella striata), the shell is chalky white and the very visible keel on the largest whorl also supports C glauerti.
