    Nice capture!! This is a #copepod...a big one!! the antennae are long and 'bi-directional' ... he looks like he's cruising ( =

    wow. really? doesn't look like any of copepods i've seen until now!😃

  • bgrassian by bgrassian scientist

    this guy is definitely a biggie!! there could be multiple species of copepod or/and they range in size by life-stage

  • bgrassian by bgrassian scientist

    I think most copepods use their antennae to move through the water, so the orientation of the body likely changes a lot as well !

    The splayed out antennae are the easiest ID most of the time

    Hmmm... this new one now makes me think those "floppy-antennae-mystery-crustacean" were copepods...
