Concerning message #1160:
Dear Bill and others,
I thought I would share some images of this interesting little haminoeid. The specimen was partly damaged during collection, but it retained its amazing extensible 'tail'. The picture that I have uploaded here does not show the full length of its extension, but close enough. The animal was about 1.5 mm long, excluding tail of course!
Locality: Port Stephens, 1 m, NSW, Australia, Pacific Ocean, 12 April 2007. Length: 1.5 mm. Photographer: Greg Rouse.

Thanks for this little cephalaspid that Clay Carlson calls a 'miniham'. It's exciting to know they can be found so close to Sydney. I wonder what the 'tail' is for?
