sea louse

Looks similar to our UK speckled sea louse

The magic of nature is all around us - we just need to learn how to see it.

Origin 18 July 2013
A good chance then, that this IS the Speckled Sea Louse - Eurydice pulchra.
This is all along that coast but not extending into the Med.
Add an ID Danny (SOON!) and see what happens.
Add a few descriptive notes, specially SIZE and move it to Invertebrates
Check it here http://www.marlin.ac.uk/species/detail/1663
Edit - added an ID and updated the MaRLIN link - all old MaRLIN links are probably flawed..
