    Is the happy-face #cydippid inside or behind the #sipho? Or something else entirely?

    a single #Radiolarian. You can see also tiny #Larvaceans and #Copepods around..

    Should we be marking the tiny guys? I think I can recognize tiny Copepods, from shape even when antennae not visible. Thx!

    Mark everything you can recognize.If it is so small that you can't be sure whether it is a Larvacean or an Arrowworm, then better ignore it

    As for me, I mark even the tiniest ones if I know what they are.

    I think our next discussion thread should be about marking copepods. I am more cautious when there is a lot of marine snow in the frame.

    The shape can be mistaken. Also, I am more hestitant to mark small/blurry larvaceans in the MED set because there are so many larval fish
