Yes, that seems to be the growing consensus (and in fairness, that was the
highest probability guess from our team as well).

>> 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:
>> (feel free to browse the rest of the blog as well!)
>> All suggestions are welcome! We return home tomorrow, and will have
>> 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.
