Deep-Sea Feathers
Ptenoplax notopus, the Flat-backed Feather-crab, from the Bay of Bengal, 100-250 fathoms. The eyes are almost rudimentary, probably as a consequence of living in deep and turbid water. The legs, especially the small and modified fifth pair, are reathered, perhaps for swimming, but probably for supporting the animal on a soft, yielding, muddy bottom
