    Is it a #medusa #ephyra?

    This looks like some other larval form to me.

    Which one? 😉 Neither is an ephyra though.

    I think we're talking about the form on the left. The one on the right looks like a doliolid. Late stage echinoderm larva?

    Any chance the ghostly form mid-left is a #pteropod?

    We never reached consensus on that one, but I don't think so. Pteropods tend to have two wing-like appendages; this is more tentacular.

    I'd say the one on the right is a doliolid with 1-2 buds (on its left side). The one on the left is some sort of protist / algae
