    Wow. I'd say protist but the "tentacles" are very long and visible. @Collodaria?

    I think we see these guys but much smaller and without the tentacles ..

    I agree. Haven't we been calling them acantharia?

    Hum... For sure not an #Acantharia (their spines are not flexible). It might be a #Phaeodaria. We have similar pictures with the UVP...

    I meant we were calling the smaller ones without the flexible spines/tentacles Acantharia. You do think protist though?
