Concerning message #21842:
Dear Bill and Gary,
After working with this genus for a number of years I know that even single individuals can show a different appearance at different times (depending on their activity state; see our recent paper). But the cerata of this individual here neither look like the ones of P. lizardensis nor like the cerata of P. rudmani. My gut tells me that this is another undescribed Phyllodesmium species...

Thanks for the quick response. I agree with your 'gut feeling'. It looks like there are a lot of xeniid-feeders out there. I will call it Phyllodesmium sp. 12.
The new Phyllodesmium lizardensis from sthn Queensland?
