FYI – the “deep sea cuke” is the shallow water Molpadia arenicola J
This episode was kind of cool, as it gave me an opportunity to convey a tiny piece of information to two reporters and then to watch it evolve as it passed through the media and internet. I said absolutely nothing about the deep sea to reporters. Likewise, I did not even hint that this stranding was somehow a consequence of warming ocean temperatures, but that has also been attributed to me. Very interesting, and a bit disturbing.

OK – that is funny. I should have known. Paul Barber sent me a picture of one a few days back. So not a deep sea beast after all. Much more sense.
Molpadia arenicola! I didn’t know who it was Tues pm when people were calling; figured it out Wednesday morning.
Hi Bruno – I could not really see much in the article other than your name – curious what critter was involved? Cheers - Gustav
