Submission + - Newly discovered deep sea worms throw bioluminesce

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."
