Anemone List and Pictures

Since there is a clownfish thread that has a list of pictures and common names, I thought that it would be good to also have an anemone list and pictures thread. What do you guys/gals think?

Hosting Anemone Species:
Cryptodendrum adhaesivum (adhesive or pizza)
Entacmaea quadricolor (bulb-tentacle, BTA, or corn)
Heteractis aurora (beaded or sand)
Heteractis crispa (long tentacle, LTA, leathery, or milk)
Heteractis magnifica (magnificent, ritteri, or skunk)
Heteractis malu (sebae, delicate, or sand)
Macrodactyla doreensis (long tentacle, LTA, or corkscrew tentacle)
Stichodactyla gigantea (gigantic or carpet)
Stichodactyla haddoni (haddon's, saddleback, carpet, or sand carpet)
Stichodactyla mertensii (merten's, or spotted-base carpet)

E. quadricolor (bulb-tentacle anemone, BTA, or corn anemone)
S. haddoni (haddon's sea anemone, saddleback anemone, carpet anemone, or sand carpet)
