”Three new species of deep-sea gromiids – single-celled organisms bearing an uncanny resemblance to miniscule haggises – have been identified and formally described by a team of researchers led by scientists from the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton (NOCS).” (quoted from NOC website)



"Gromiids are large (more than 30 millimetres) amoeboid single-celled organisms that live within an organic shell or ‘test’, and possess retractable projections of the cell body called pseudopodia, which they use to move across the seafloor and to accumulate food particles. " (quoted from NOC website)
