The Larva of the Starfish
|A ghost like appearance in marine plankton, although less than a millimetre long, the transparent body of the larva of the starfish is a magnificent lifeform. Covered with ciliated bands it has an elegant way of locomotion. Slowly does it glide through the water. In the centre you can see the mouth-opening leading towards a round gut below. The strip in front of it is the anus.|
