+ - Newly discovered deep sea worms throw bioluminesce

Submitted by

homer30 writes "Researchers from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego have announced in Science the discovery of seven new species of deep sea worms, five of which drop orb-like parts of their body which cause a brilliant green display of bioluminescence. For this reason researchers have nicknamed them the 'green bombers'. The worms are not just new species, but a clade of animals entirely unknown to science until now."
