tiny nudi? worm? roatan.

Recommended Posts

My friend Chris found these guys yesterday afternoon in about 25 feet of water in Roatan. They move (surprisingly quickly) like a slug and are very small. Probably a millimeter or possibly 2. Showing the photo around West End didn't help with ID so I thought I'd bring it to you. First, the shot of the coral they were on:

And here is the crop showing two of them, one from the top, one from the side:

Any info would be cool. Thanks in advance.

I'm not positive since the pic is so small but I think you have something similar to the acoel flatworms I photographed in the BIV - http://www.nhm.org/guana/bvi-invt/bvi-surv...-i01/h0728b.htm

 

I knew I could rely on this place. Thanks Leslie. I'll try to get a better shot over the summer but I suspect that with my g9 this is about as good as I'm going to get. I showed your post to the DM who found them and he was super happy to have more info.

 

Cheers.
