    hopefully our ctenophora master will show up soon to help us solve this mystery..

    very strange!! I don't think it is a ctenophore. The other images you posted with the faint tentacles make me think it might be a sipho

    or a fragment of a sipho.. might be nectophores/swimming bells. Otherwise I would say some strange protist colony. I will forward this guy

  • yshish by yshish moderator, translator

    cool! so should i tag them as a #corncob nextime?

  • cguigand by cguigand scientist, admin

    that's tough one but it could be an #ephyra view from the side. It is a medusa larval stage. May be

  • yshish by yshish moderator, translator

    @cguigand: have you seen the links where it has cydippid-like branching tentacles? do ephyras have them too?
