    i'm curious if this is haeckelia beehleri or another one?

  • bgrassian by bgrassian scientist

    Woa!! Haeckelia would be my assertion as well, with one tentacle extended/visible, but am not used to seeing them of this size!

    You are amazing with your ctenophores Zuz!! I bet most people classified this as a beroe, not a #cydippid

    The slightly rounded aboral pole, the long, unbranching tentacle, and the length of the ctene rows help ID this guy

    Ok for sure!! I will take a look in a bit... so impressed with your ctenophore collection... these are some wonderful finds! ( =

    the ctene rows are about 1/2 the body length and the meridional canals are equal in length and nearly the length of the body
