surprised if it was a different species. More research I think should be done on it. I have an odd non bioluminescent specimen that I found here in New York, it even has some macromorphology that stands out from the others that I usually find, though I have no way of knowing without more info if this is just a genetic quirk. 99.9% of all the ones I find have at least some bioluminescence.

we are calling it by the same name …

but is it really the same species?

perhaps a lack of bioluminescence is not the only difference?

let’s start comparing micro and DNA and not just photos.

macro kinda sorta looks alike is not really enough, is it?

Occurs on the west coast as well, but the west coast variety is apparently not bioluminescent.

got underside shot?
