Dear Colleagues

During our examination of the slides that Dick used in his thesis (1966), we came over this little creature. Have anyone of you seen this guy before?

It was found in the outer part of the Gulf of California, east of La Paz at 1263 m water depth in Station VSE 71, 1-11 cm. The skeleton consist of only one sphere, diameters 140/100 µm (longest/shortest), the meshes are mostly triangular to polygonal, of unequal size. The bars are thin, but some do appear thicker giving the view of scattered ridges with no special pattern on the surface of the lattice sphere.

Very rare. Any help on this one is appreciated.
