Susan Straight of the National Geographic is seeking help identifying
the animal in a deep-sea photo (posted on the website at http://www.le.ac.uk/biology/gat/deepsea/deepsea.html). The photo is being used in
a book "Return to the Titanic" which is going to press this week. Does
anyone know what this is? Is it a sponge? a tunicate? She doesn't
need a species name, just an idea of what it is.
