Best of the Echinoblog digest: Deep-Sea Critters!

I have been a little busy this week with catchup and post-trip stuff , while I was away with MBARI on this expedition so here is one of my "Best of the Echinoblog" series that was supposed to get posted while I was gone-but didn't!

THREE of the things below were seen on the trip! I'll leave it up to you guys to decide which ones! (or you could just check the blog from the cruise!)

The mystery of the Abyssal "Sea Daisy" Xyloplax. Pt. 1 and Pt. 2

Deep-sea brisingid starfish!! Weird Biology (here) and the stories behind their taxonomic name (here)!
Bizarre Echinothuriid sea urchins!
