This seahorse was spotted and photographed by a friend. I have seen several of this species of seahorse with those white stringy things on them and was wondering if it is some kind of parasite. Anyone know?
4 Adults at Oviedo Mall.
Kind o like seed lettuce it grows close to the ground
Two obscured shots. This is a migrant, and a state bird for me. You can see the white terminal tip to the tail in the first shot.
Enjoying the game
Hiding, unlike every other Mockingbird in Florida currently
This photo is not mine; it was posted on a FaceBook page and then sent to me looking for an identification. I do not have any copyright on this image; please do not use it for commercial purposes.
At first I thought it resembles the brachiopod Lingula anatina, in size and shape, but someone pointed out that they don't have translucent shells.
So now I think the most plausible ID is that it is a polychaete worm egg mass. The clear gelatinous mass is acting like a camera lens/prism, and the dark parts in the image are the inverted palm trees in the background.
I do not have any additional information about this creature or the observation.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
