NOAA Photo Library Image - expl2295

This Frenulate, now known to be within the family Siboglinidae and a type of polychaete, was collected of New Zealand at 1140m (3420 ft) and was originally assigned to its own phylum. Through genetic techniques and delicate morphologic study, scientists now know that it is in the same family as those polychaetes in figure expl2291.
