Dear Paulo and all,

This photo is really amazing! It pictures the anterior region of an
Acoetidae, in my opinion of an Eupolyodontes. Maybe E. batabanoensis
Ibarzábal, 1988, reported from the region of the Caribbean, or something
similar. The shape of the lateral antennae are similar to E. batabanoensis.

You can find a description of the species and revision of the whole family
(paper by Pettibone, 1989) here:


Thanks for this great picture, it seems that the coloration of the
ommatophores changes between living and fixed material. 

All the best,

João Gil

Dear all,

I take part a forum on http://doris.ffessm.fr where each user can send a
photo so that people comment.

The photo attached is an animal unknown to us. 

The photo was taken for Mr. Cedric Pau in Martinique in 10 m deep in night

Do you have an idea what is??

Thank you.
