I'm currently sailing in Sargasso Sea on research cruise and need an ID for a larval cephalopod we found. The egg strings (several dozens of them) were attached to a small mat of common gulf weed (Sargassum natans) Each string had ~40-50 individual eggs within it. The egg diameter was ~1.5mm and the larvae ~1mm total length. Image:


Any hep would be greatly appreciated!
