  1. At first I was just admiring the several different species cnidarian, one of which is probably a corallimorpharian.

    Then I noticed the slipper limpet sitting on the proboscis of the pycnogonid. I kind of chuckled to myself, “oh those silly limpets” as I often do.

    It was at that moment I realized the pycnogonid had 2 different sizes of legs. A closer examination revealed that there were 16 visible legs and two probosci at right angles to each.

    So what you have in that picture is a small pycnogonid on top of a large one. God only knows they are doing in that position!
