    This one is hard to see... probably #sipho #corncob (physonect)

    But here's how you tell: see that pointy end (away from tentacles)? those dark, oval opaque things are their gas floats.

    If you see a gas float that means it's a corncob. that's our nickname for the physonect siphonophores.

    see the gas float on top of its 'head'?

    The apparent head may be more pronounced due to orientation
