"New species are a dime a dozen in the deep sea," says Vecchione, "and I suspect there are a lot of very weird things down there."

Young at University of Hawaii in Honolulu, Hawaii; D. J. Lindsay at Japan Marine Science and Technology Center in Kanagawa-ken, Japan; D. A. Clague at Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute in Moss Landing, California; J. M. Bernhard at University of South Carolina in Columbia; W. W. Sager at Texas A&M University in College Station; M.
