Researchers identify tiny, unique sea creature photographed in 2018


An international team of zoologists and parasitic worm specialists has identified an odd sea creature captured by an underwater photographer in 2018 off the coast of Okinawa. In their project, reported in the open-access journal Current Biology, the group obtained and studied a sample of the sea creature.

Shortly after he captured images of the creature, photographer Ryo Minemizu posted them online, asking if anyone knew what it was. None of his followers had seen anything like it before. Intrigued, Minemizu went back to where he had seen the creature and found it, or another one like it. He captured the ladybug-sized creature and stored it until it caught the attention of the research team. Minemizu sent them the sample and then awaited the results of their investigation.
