Naked sea angel! (Pteropod larva)

This shell-less gastropod was found during the Marine Larvae course at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute’s Bocas del Toro Research Station. It was so unusual the course participants decided to do further research and identify it. The specimen has been prepared for DNA barcoding and the researchers should know in the near future what species it is.
