Lyrocteis flavopallidus Robilliard & Dayton, 1972

provided by British Antarctic Survey

Description

Lyrocteis flavopallidus is sedentary and usually found atop sponges or other elevated surfaces. However, it is able to move at least 1 to 2 m per day possible to attain a more advantageous feeding position. The systematic placement of «L. flavopallidus» is somewhat uncertain because neither the anatomy of the reproductive system nor the larval development is known; the species may represent a new genus and possibly a new family.)
