    I agree, but it looks different than the usual. Another one just like it: Image APK00079y6

    I don't think it is the same as the other frame (see my comment there). But it does not look like a sipho indeed.

    It seems to have combs (the edges of the body appear serrated) but I don't know comb jellies which would look like that.

    You don't think this might be another phronima inside a salp body?

    I did find a Sipho which looked the same as this guy to me when I sent my comment! I'll try to search it again and share the link.....

    "Male and female gonozoids of a calycophoran siphonophore. A Lensia conoidea.." What do you think about @jo.irisson ? May it be the same?

    Hm, well, the shape is a bit different .. and the drawing isn't visible on the photo aither... The Phronima idea seems more alike to me:)

    There is a more opaque part inside but the outside does not look like a salp body. There actually seem to be two pieces.

    The next frame shows this is the whole organism. So it might be a piece detached from a sipho after all.

    After all the discussion on this, please clarify how we should mark it, or not mark it and comment instead?

  • yshish by yshish moderator, translator

    We shouldn't mark pieces detached from Siphos unless they're swimming bells. But wait for a scientist. Hope @jo.irisson will sign in soon
