> Dear Taxacomers:
> We are on expedition in Pohnpei, conducting surveys of deep coral reefs.
>  We've been finding an unusual organism that is extremely abundant on the
> sea floor at depths of about 80-95 meters (more or less).  The collective
> wisdom of our team (with primary expertise in fishes and gorgonians) has
> come up with a best-guess taxonomic identification as "some kind of animal
> -- or maybe algae?"
> Photos and a brief description are available on the expedition blog:
> http://blog.bishopmuseum.org/research/?p=294
> (feel free to browse the rest of the blog as well!)
> All suggestions are welcome!  We return home tomorrow, and will have better
> access to microscopes, etc. as of next week.  If you know what it is, or
> have any suggestions, please feel free to comment on the blog site itself,
> reply to this taxacom post, or email me directly.
> Aloha,
