I, for one, welcome our new chitinous overlords.
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
There is a clue in my Unraveling Arthropoda post.
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 ??
