Dear all

Recently certain alcyonids and tunicates were spotted in relative large
numbers on the floats of a large work platform. No one here on Curacao
remembers ever seeing these organisms, nor can they be found in local ID
guides. Does anyone recognize these species and can confirm they are
Caribbean or from elsewhere? Please send responses to carmabilog at gmail.com
