Scientific NameEdit

Phoenixcauda multicnideria


This photobiont has the polystem fusing into a single stem - and then it branches out again! Each branch has many bright orange cnideria - and the branches themselves must be photosynthetic, despite their pale color, because we have only seen cnideria on photosynthetic organisms, and there's no other pigmented tissue. This is definitely worth a second look. --Jane Van Susteren, Exobiology Lead
