Arthropoda ID (#3)

OK, this time I’m totally stumping all the smart-guys/gals who crushed my last two attempts at ID contests.


Who am I?

Leave a comment if you can guess the species…

    Um. A bicycle chain? That grew a head? I have no idea.

    WTF? Is that supposed to be an arthropod?

    Oh yeah, it’s not a bicycle chain, it’s an adult arthropod.

    I admit defeat

    Well, I bet its in Pentastomida (which I had never heard of). I’ll look into it more tomorrow.

    Looks like a Wimberly Plamp (Clampus articulatus)

    Hah! I’m liking the wild guesses.

    Zombie roach is right in that it is a pentastomid. I’m going to be doing a post about the massive weirdness of Oligostracans, which includes these guys, as well as ostracods and other such strangeness.

    I looked at it and thought of the Grey’s Anatomy episode where I guy came in with a fish in his penis.

    My guess a member of the genus Armillifer ??
