Hello List,

During an oceanographic sampling (2006) this organism was collected in a
zooplaknton bongo net (30 cm
mouth opening; 250 um mesh) on Gorgona
 Island, Tropical Eastern
Pacific (see link below).
And yet we have not been identified. Does anyone know if this could be a coral
polyp or what kind of organism is?

If someone thinks that know what is, please send me an email to
di8go11 at hotmail.com
