Abstract
    The cerianthid anemone Arachnanthus sarsi Carlgren, 1912 is redescribed from newly collected specimens from Western Scotland. Carlgren's type specimen was damaged and lacked the upper part of the body and tentacles, so this is the first description of a complete specimen. The anemones were observed alive and in situ by SCUBA diving, allowing a description of live coloration, habitat and feeding behaviour. The relationship of A. sarsi to the Mediterranean A. oligopodus and the Caribbean A. nocturnus is briefly discussed. The possiblity that A. sarsi is the adult form of the better known larval cerianthid Arachnactis albida M. Sars 1846 is considered and the changes in nomenclature which would result if this synonymy could be proven are noted.
