  1. Definitely Cyanea, but his 'little buddy' is a Hyperiid amphipod, parasitic... they eat the jelly's food, then eat the jelly!
  2. Jim, will you post that jelly sighting on www.jellywatch.org with the approx. location/info? Always good to know areas that are trapping jellies... Thank you! Wyatt
  3. Hey Wahrmut, The second photo is of Pelagia sp. and third is Aequorea sp. Cheers, Wyatt
  4. Hi Wahrmut, You are correct, it appears to be Rhopilema sp. Because there has been so little taxonomic work done on this genus it is difficult to assign a species, I'm guessing R. nomadica, but I do not know the differences between R. nomadica and R. hispidum and since there is no description from the Mozambique area it's possible that it is an undescribed species. Cheers, Wyatt
  5. Hey everyone, selling my Olympus rig. Listed it all on ebay, if something doesn't sell I'll post here after Sunday for 2nd chance deals. Trying to sell it all and start fresh: Inon D-2000W Olympus E-330 w/14-45mm Olympus PT-E02 housing w/Heinrichs TTL adapter Athena OPD sz14-42 dome port Cheers, Wyatt
  6. The second photo looks more like Apolemia to me than Praya. Apolemia has that nice fuzzy look to it, where as the feeding polyps in Praya tend to hang straight down when extended and looks simpler overall, usual yellow/orange in color too. Cheers, Wyatt
  7. Wow, awesome specimen. I'm actually building a list of sightings for Thysanostoma in an attempt to find them. Unfortunately you will not find any information for this species because it has never been studied, no formal work that is, someone might have some unpublished data out there... Any chance you can post this sighting on jellywatch.org? Great shot! Wyatt
  8. Olindias has amazing fluorescence, your flash revealed some, if you get a chance to shoot it again bring a yellow filter and blue light! :-)
  9. That guy appears to be Lychnorhiza lucerna, very cool. http://thescyphozoan.ucmerced.edu/Syst/Rhi..._lucerna_i.html You should post your shot on Jellywatch.org! Very useful information... Cheers, Wyatt
  10. Hmm... need to get closer, but I'll just go with overall form and guess Turbinaria sp., scroll coral. Cheers, Wyatt
  11. Hi there, was that the only jellyfish you saw? It appears to be Chrysaora lactea. You should post your find on Jellywatch.org Cheers, Wyatt
  12. Yeh, that's cuttlefish ink. The big ones make even more ink... here at the Monterey Bay Aquarium one large animal will black out our entire exhibit... Cheers, Wyatt
  13. Is it just me or does the captive wolf look nothing like the wolf in the photo??? (From the original link Alex posted) The captive wolf has a distinguishable ruff and shorter, broader snout. Not to mention its overall coat, which could be its winter coat I guess. I don't get the arrow pointing to the ear, and the mark on the cheek is the only similarity I can see. Also the background doesn't seem to match to me, I see lots of lichens in the shot and little to none in the comparison view. shouldn't they be able to find that exact rocky area in the captive enclosure/area somewhere??? Or shouldn't the photographer be able to reveal the exact location it was taken. Did I skim through the thread too fast? Missing a critical piece of evidence against the photographer? -Wyatt
