    this is definitely a #cydippid. i have a few guys like this saved on my comp because they are so clear and so confusing

    my best guess is they are a near perfect capture of '(cydippid)-like larva of a lobate ctenophore,' with the cydippid tentacle retracted

    and if else, a cydippid species not yet confirmed... really cool !!
