  1. Thanks Leslie (looks like a "naked" brissel worm) I found 2 yesterday. Your've our source! Thanks again
  2. Leslie, Can you tell me who this is? I photographed it yesterday in West Palm Beach, FL. It was found under a rock and was about 1 1/2 inches long. Thanks, Anne
  3. This was photographed on Sunday in West Palm Beach, Fl. by my dive buddy Judy T. Is it a tunicate? Thanks, Anne
  4. Hi Leslie, My photos clearly show the pair of "hooks" also...glad to know what it is (but "Peanut" worm sounded so cute!) Cheers, Anne
  5. Great photos, Phil, I sent you some web sites off line .... with everything you need to know about Peanut worms! (I think we were like first graders finding a new bug on the playground yesterday when you found it.) What fun.
  6. Thanks James, I have reviewed all my photos of the animal, and looked at online resources, and I'm sure that's what the animal is. Now that we know what it is, we will be on the lookout for more. Thanks, Anne
  7. Thanks Leslie and Scott, The little critter had us all stumped!
  8. Help Leslie, A dive buddy found this today in West Palm Beach, Fl. crawling on the sand. The animal would stretch out from about 2 inches to about 4 inches. It appeared to have two tiny stalks on one end on top, and had an opening on one end like a sea cucumber. It was green, red and purple, and was soft and bumpy. Is it a baby sea cucumber? Thanks, Anne
  9. A friend sent me this for help in identifying this nudibranch from Wakatobi. He said: "Another unidentified subject. This nudibranch was probably 8-10 inches long and 5 across. It was lying in a cave and difficult to shoot. My camera could not get in properly. Any clue what this is?" Thanks, Anne
  10. Thank you so much Don, for such a quick response! It did look like there was an internal shell, I'll check all my photos more closely for any tentacles. Thanks again, Anne
  11. Thanks Leslie, I'll look forward to hearing...
  12. Help Leslie, On Thursday I was diving in West Palm Beach, Fl. I turned over a rock and found this tiny purple animal. At first I thought it was a flatworm, but realized it was not when I saw the "hole" It quickly moved down the rock in a pulsating motion. It was about 5-6mm in diameter. Can you tell me what it is? Thanks, Anne
  13. Thanks Leslie, Yes they do look like sequin appliques! I'll check out the link. You're the best!
  14. A friend sent me this photo to ID. This is the information he sent me: "The picture was taken in Wakatobi. The small one was probably 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch, the bigger one maybe 1 1/4 inch. I did not see them move. But then I was not hanging around for a long time either." Leslie, Marli, Help! Thanks, Anne
  15. Thanks Leslie, You're the BEST! Anne
  16. Leslie, is this a sea mouse? Found it Sunday up in West Palm Beach under a rock, it was about 2.5cm and was "fuzzy" all over. Moving very fast and I only got a couple of shots. Thanks, Anne
  17. Hi Peter, My guess is: Pseudoceros bolool Check out these images to see if they are the same as your photograph. As Leslie said, it is very difficult to tell from a photograph of an all black animal. Pseudoceros cf. bolool Marine Flatworms of the World http://www.rzuser.uni-heidelberg.de/~bu6/flat0059.html Pseudoceros bolool http://edge-of-reef.com/platelminti/PLAPseudocerossp8en.htm Pseudoceros bolool Newman and Cannon 1994 http://stri.discoverlife.org/mp/20q?search...udoceros+bolool Cheers, AnneDiver
  18. Peter, Where was the photograph taken? AnneDiver
  19. Great images Jack, Leslie is right, it is Maritigrella fuscopunctata Anne
  20. It is Phidiana lynceus. See: http://www.seaslugforum.net/display.cfm?id=1931 Here is one from Curacao, NA

  22. Doug, Great Sea Hare photos. It could be a color form of Aplysia Morio. If you can post a picture that can be copied, I will send it to a couple of scientists to try to get it identified for you. Regards, AnneDiver
  23. I have purchased the Nikon Coolpix 8700, 8 meg, and Ike has just announced the 6198 Housing for it. As of now, this is the only housing I see on the market for this camera. I chose this camera for several resons over the SLR. #1, I shot 90% macro and I like the wide viewing screen and macro capabilities of this camera. #2 Since I am 5'1" tall I wanted something small and compact for me to handle in current, etc. Anyone out there thinking about the same set-up? Any negative or positive comments to help me get started with digital? Thanks, Annediver
