Hi Chris -- Great photos, good enough that I sent the link to a friend of mine who specializes in anemones, John Ljubenkov. While he really liked the series he had reservations about the name. The color & texture of the body are species characters in Urticina. U. piscivora has a smooth solid red or reddish-brown body while your animal's body is red with yellowish tubercles. John would just leave it as Urticina sp. I guess any anemone that's big enough & has toxic enough nematocysts can eat a fish!
