The sea-mat. It is common on almost every coast, and is found thrown up among sea-weeds. It is flat and variously divided, of a pale brown color, and, when examined, the surface is found to be covered with a kind of network of quadrangular cells, having minute teeth at the angles. When living these cells are fitted with polypi, each having a mouth fringed with tentacles. On account of its peculiar scent the sea mat is sometimes called lemon weed.
