    @cguigand What about that transparent fin like structure along both side of the body/stem? Is that common at some Polychaete species? Thanks!

    And what about a #Phylliroe #slug? http://www.deepseanews.com/2016/03/video-the-sea-slug-that-looks-and-swims-like-a-fish/

    Good suggestion yshish, although compared to the video, this one is lacking the tail-like part, has too many "mustaches", and a too thin gut

    ... but it may be a similar type of organism

    Yeah, there are some differences.... I was thinking about a larval stage or another species of a slug. I know too few marine animals 😦
