Scientists Discover New Life Form

This doesn’t happen every day. Scientists from the University of Copenhagen have created a new genus after finding two species of deep-sea organisms that “that cannot at present be placed in an existing phylum.” The organisms, which are mushroom shaped, are multicellular and nonsymmetrical. They live 400 to 1000 meters below the surface. The new genus will be called Dendrogramma. The organisms will be called D. enigmatica and D. discoides.
