    ...
    The tentilla of Euplokamis dunlapae differ significantly from those of other organisms in the Order Cydippids. They contain striated muscle, a cell type not common in the phylum Ctenophora; their muscles are coiled when relaxed, while the tentilla of all other ctenophores elongate when relaxed. Euplokamis dunlapae's' tentilla have three types of movement that are used in {euplokamis.jpg} capturing prey: they may flick out very quickly (in 40 to 60 milliseconds); they can wriggle (acting like worms), and they coil around prey. The unique flicking is an uncoiling movement powered by contraction of the striated muscle.
    The Euplokamis dunlapae has a maximum body length of 2 centimeters and is shaped like a football.It is transparent and is red pigmented on their tentacles. When it is disturbed, it releases blobs of luminescent material. They can be found in the waters of San Juan Islands and British Columbia.

    Lampea pancerinaLampea pancerina are cylindrical, narrow ctenophores from the order Cydippida. Its lips are dilatable to a wide sole on which the animal moves over solid surfaces. They are usually only about 70mm in length and are a common sight in the Mediterranean, Atlantic Ocean, and the are of the coat of Japan. L. pancerina are sepcial because they are the only parasitic ctenophore known. They live on the surface of salps and consume little bits at a time.

    ...
    Pleurobrachia pileus is a small, oblong or spherical ctenophore that grows to be about 1-2.5cm long. It has two very long tentacles, which may be up to 20 times its body size and can be retracted into the body. These tentacles are used to trap prey, bearing adhesive cells called colloblasts. They feed on other P. Pileus, fish eggs and larvae, and copepod crustaceans. Like other ctenophores, it swims by beating eight rows of cilia rhythmically. This species is hermaphroditic—sperm and eggs are released in the water, thus fertilization occurs externally. Most individuals die immediately after spawning. P. Pileus are preyed upon by small fish. It inhabits shallow waters and is most commonly found in the North Atlantic region in summer and early autumn.
