Virgadendron wallacii


This photobiont has the polystem we've seen several other times, a fine display of bright orange cnideria, and a pale, waxy surface covering most tissue. It also has several amorphous growths just below the cnideria - they may be some sort of parasite, or a reproductive organ, or another means to gas exchange. --Jane Van Susteren, Exobiology Lead
