Phyllodesmium sp. 05 is an unidentified or undescribed species of the genus Phyllodesmium. I call it Phyllodesmium sp. 05, to distinguish it from other species of Phyllodesmium.
It is characterized by its uniform bright tan colour, the body as well as the cerata, which are whitish tipped.
This species was posted on 22 September 2004 at these websites as Phyllodesmium sp. E  Genus: Ehrenberg, 1831, and on 18 November 2011 changed into
Phyllodesmium sp. 05  Genus: Ehrenberg, 183.
For some genera, was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I had chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
Thanks for identification to Dr. Juan Lucas Cervera Currado.
