Two-headed larvacean?

    Any ideas?

    Nice observation. This larvacean's head is definitely larger than the example we posted. There are actually three major families of larvaceans. this guy falls within the family Fritillaridae and looks slightly different from the most common type of larvacean (Oikopleuridae)
