'Curly' Worm ;)

26 May 2010 - 04:56 PM

Please would anyone be able to assist me with an ID of this worm. Initially I thought it was a nudibranch as it was so pretty, but on closer inspection it would appear to be a segmented worm.

Approx 1cm in length, not shy. Found on the underside of a piece of loose sponge in a turtle grass bed in approx 30ft water.

Your help is greatly appreciated!Picture

Shrimp in Touch Me Not Sponge

26 May 2010 - 04:46 PM

Please can anyone help with an ID of this shrimp? Found in Touch Me Not sponges, apparently in symbiotic relationship with the Touch Me Not sponge worms...

No ID in the books that I have.

Size approx. <1cm, transparent with tiny white 'gloves'.

Shrimp in Sea Pen

13 April 2010 - 01:41 PM

Hi folks,

Me again! Found this shrimpabout quarter if an inch in size, in a Sea Pen, approx 40ft, sea grass bed. Again this is a 'new to me' critter, and I'd be very happy if anyone can provide a name for the face.

St. Vincent, Caribbean sea.

Thank you so much for your assistance!

Bright red scorpion like shrimp...

19 March 2010 - 01:23 PM

Found this critter yesterday, hiding under an old shoe, on a muck dive. Approx 30ft water in a bay that has a river mouth. Cannot find any mention in any of the ID books that I have. It was approx 1 inch / 2.5 cms, bright red, and behaving in a manner similar to a scorpion. (And it really did not want to be photographed!)

The picture is not as sharp as I would like, but it should be clear enough to get an ID.

Thank you again for your help!

Critter to be ID'd

Sea Slug ID please - a type of Doris?

Found at Critter Corner last Friday, 25ft of water, hiding under a piece of loose sponge (flotsam? I always get flotsam / jetsam mixed up!). Doris?

The critter was approx 1 inch in size, and seemed relatively unbothered by me, but headed back into the shade quite quickly.

Thanks!
