Eudendrium rameum

(Pallas, 1766)


Erling Svensen Eudendrium rameum from Trondheimsfjord, Norway.

Marco Faasse beautiful amphipods ;-)

Erling Svensen You should look at the hydroid, Marco.....!

Marco Faasse Sorry! Let's blame it on the quality of your camera ...

Bernard Picton Quite a few hydroids are fertile in November, but in this country the water is usually too rough to dive and the visibility is bad because of that. This is a great observation. Do you have a species name for this one, Erling?

Bernard Picton Oh, I see rameum.... Candidate species complex in my opinion...

Bernard Picton Peter Schuchert has done a great revision of Eudendrium recently. It is just that these species have tiny differences and this one a wide geographic range...
