Colonial Tunicate  

In response to the discovery last November of an invasive tunicate on the ocean bottom in Georges Bank, the USGS has put together a Didemnum vexillum web page. The goal of the website is to be a clearinghouse for current, detailed information about this tunicate, a marine invertebrate. Scientists are encouraged to contact the webmaster with details of related research projects so that they can be posted on the site.

Update 10/2004: The sea squirt species has been reclassified as Didemnum lahillei.
