A friend (Barbara Balestra, nannoplankton specialist) sent to me a couple of pictures of a strange bug she finds in the plankton (water samples) from the North Pacific. Her material is just on a filter, as it comes from the ship's water pumps. She thought it could be a radiolarian...
However, I could not identify it, and could actually be almost anything (with the "ebridian" hypothesis being a definite possibility). Any idea what this could be ?!?!
Thanks and have fun,
