A 'Rad- ical' question: is this a rad and if so who is it?
I've found a bunch of these (1 per litre) in surface (0-100 m) layer
samples from the eastern Med. from last September. So far everyone has
drawn a blank! Dave Caron suggested it might be a rad. The specimen was
fixed in Lugol's (hence the redish tinge of the cytoplasm).
