The Siphonophore Bathyphysa Sibogae Lens and van Riemsdijk, 1908, in the Sargasso Sea, with Notes on Its Natural History
Eleven specimens of Bathyphysa sibogae Lens and van Riemsdijk, 1908 (Siphonophorae: Cystonectae) were collected by SCUBA divers in the upper 30 m of the Sargasso Sea. The appearance and behavior of the living animal are described for the first time. The larger gastrozooids are attached to the stem by pedicles, and their tentacles have tricomate tentilla. The hyperiid amphipod, Schizoscellls ornatus Claus, 1879 seems to be preferentially associated with this siphonophore.
