Scientific NameEdit

Inverterethyreo caeruleplume


This photobiont has a short stem - rounded at the top - with pale tubercles at the top. There is also a ring of bright blue tissue - I'm not sure if it's branchia or cnideria or something new. Unlike most cnideria, it's bright blue and branched, and unlike most branchia, it's not contiguous tissue. It could be a third tissue type, it could be intermediate between the two, or it could just be an interesting variation on tissue we're already slightly familiar with. --Jane Van Susteren, Exobiology Lead
