Alien Organisms

Alien Organisms is a metaphoric category of marine life including those lacking thorough research, and those with “strange” or “alien” morphology. It is the organisms of the mysterious and unknown. In the case of the genera Nematoda, this unfamiliarity is due to difficulty in distinguishing between various species with consistency. It also includes organisms with life stages typically alien and strange compared to their more familiar forms.
