It's another dude of specie of ascidian in the same place of the previous identification.

The size of every individual it's 2-3cm. It's have a expansive behavior. It's possible that is Ecteinascidia thurstoni?

These are very similar to Ecteinascidia turbinata Herdman, 1880 (file in progress...)
The localisation(Delta del Ebro) is consistent with attempts of raising this species in the Baleares island, and scattering of larvae throughout Western Mediterrannee
