a marine Larva

Post by Franz Neidl »

From today's hunting: This is a larva. The diameter was 400 µm. But I have no idea from what animal it comes. Maybe somebody can help me?

Hello Franz,

a beautifully crisp photo.

This time I am guessing, but i think it is a Cnidarian late planula larva, perhaps a coral. Were there just the two brown spots or were there others around the circumference ?

thank you for another beautiful post,

regards
Brian
