    #FFF not sure about the center guy. in the end i tagged him as a #polychaeteworm, but i think it could be as well a #larva of something else

    it reminds me Brachiolaria larvae of a starfish a little bit, but doesn't look the same: http://www.madreporite.com/science/reproduction.htm

    what an odd one! those appendages could be the parapodia of a polychaete worm, though i don't see body segments. an arthropod of some sort?

    I thought a crustacean larva, perhaps a view of a nauplius or zoea from the bottom?

    I've seen more of them. Like about five so far, all looking exactly the same.

    No idea about the little friend in the center. I love it when everyone is puzzled. 😃

    Based on the other picture rather than on this one, I'd say a (late) nauplii larval stage, possibly of a barnacle.
