Caption: Porcelain crab (Porcellanella triloba) on a sea pen (Virgularia sp.). The porcelain crab is feeding, using the large feathery appendage (maxilipeds) around its head and claws to capture zooplankton and direct them to its mouth. The sea pen is a colonial organism related to sea feathers. Photographed in Tulamben, Bali, Indonesia.
