Dear all,
The "mysterious" mass occurence in the Komodo Islands (reference to my previous two mails) was Cestum veneris!!! 
Thank you all,

> Dear all,
> Hope to find someone from the Komodo Islands here or someone who's been there and knows the answer to my question: Here in the Maldives, I've got a resort guest who asked me about an animal that she has seen in the Komodo Islands and never found what it actually was. So I let her describe it and thought I would find it via my friend Google, but I couldn't!
> According to her, it lives in shallow, knee-deep water, resembles a snake or a "ribbon", is ca 2 cm high (don't know how long), in the centre transparent, with pink outer lines... and "they were everywhere", so I suppose the density of these animals must have been quite high.
> Maybe there's anyone on the list who can tell me what it is! I'd appreciate =)
