  1. Hi, A possibility is the unidentified porcelain crab in the Gosliner book, on page 228. (Oatesii is on p. 232). Regards, Judy Foester
  2. To me it looks like the Corallimorpharian, genus Discosoma.
  3. I found a Coeloplana tucked in the 'armpit' of a starfish at Wakatobi. Guess it was just a commensal hitchhiker.
  4. Hi Leslie, Believe me, I have the oldest books on the planet. I had no idea you were so possessive of worm photos. Here's one for you. I was looking at this Dendronephthya and realized there was a polychaete worm wrapped around a branch: my guess is that it is Odontosyllis sp. I took this at Albatross Pass near Three Island Harbor just north-west of Kavieng, in PNG. Regards, Judy
  5. He has not been holding out on you. These are brand new and there are a lot more. Maybe you can 'worm' them out of him. Judy
  6. Leslie, I have the photo ready to post. I just resampled it to reduce size and hopefully it will post. This is also one of Eric Cheng's photos from Rajah Ampat. Judy
  7. When I went on the Bilikiki to the Solomon Islands in 1991, the Santia isopods were on every little organism, even the plankton that I had collected in a peanut-butter jar on a night dive by putting my flashlight against the bottom of the jar. Boy, it filled right up. I had brought my microscope and my photo adapter attachment for my Pentax camera, on the trip. Nothing like traveling light! Judy
  8. The polychaete worms in the sand grain tube are Polydorella prolifera. They arrange themselves over the entire surface of the sponge so that they are tentacle-length distance apart. Your one photo shows them perched on the sea-edge of the sponge with their tentacles plying the plankton flows. Judy
  9. Eric, the orange things are Santia. The things I got wrong on the first disc were not orange themselves. They were sand-clad polychaete worms scattered on an orange sponge. Judy
