Des animaux sous-marins impossibles à classer sur l'arbre de la vie

Des animaux sous-marins impossibles à classer sur l'arbre de la vie | Environment and Biodiversity | Scoop.it

Provenant des profondeurs du Pacifique, ces créatures ressemblant à des champignons présentent des similitudes avec des formes de vie datant de 600 millions d'années.

C'est l'un de ces mystères dont seule la nature a le secret. Deux espèces d'animaux marins à la forme de champignons ont été découvertes dans les profondeurs de l'océan Pacifique, entre – 400 et – 1 000 mètres de profondeur, au sud-est de l'Australie. Des créatures si méconnues qu'elles n'entrent dans aucune des familles de la classification des êtres vivants.
