    It is twisted towards the camera. larvaceans=appendicularians, and they look like a tadpole. the head is a ovular and dark on the bottom

    the semi-transparent body looks like a ribbon, with 'lines' running across the body

    Thank you. I guess the angle makes it hard for me to match it against the field guide pictures. I hope I get better at this.

    dont worry! orientation is definitely the hardest to latch on to visually. that's why it is great to ask on the board. have fun browsing !
