DescriptionEdit

This is another segmented photobiont - stacks of ever-smaller red cylinders. Note the tubercles on top - this is evidence against the 'tubercles are full of nasty chemicals that deter herbivores' hypothesis. If only I had an alternate hypothesis. --Jane Van Susteren, Exobiology Lead
