      <h3>Dendrogramma enigmatica</h3>
        Dendrogramma enigmatica is a species of siphonophore, the only species of its 
        genus, identified in 2014 from a collection of specimens gathered in 1986 and 
        identified as a siphonophore from RNA material from new specimens in 2016. 
        The specimens are presumed to represent parts (bracts) of a larger organism whose 
        entire morphology is unknown.

        The Dendrogramma specimens were collected off the south-east coast of Australia during a scientific expedition in 1986. They were collected at water depths of 400 metres (1,300 ft) and 1,000 metres (3,300 ft) on the continental slope near Tasmania, using a sled that was dragged over the sea floor to collect bottom-dwelling animals.The researchers were immediately struck by the unusual characteristics of the 18 specimens they collected. These were preserved in formaldehyde, and later in ethanol, for further study.

        On returning to the sample site in 1988, the researchers were unable to find any further specimens. It was not until 2014 that they published the discovery. Jean Just of the University of Copenhagen, who carried out the trawling in 1986, has explained the long delay before publication in terms of the extraordinary nature of the discovery: "Once you think you have something really extraordinary, it takes a long time to study, read, consult left, right and centre, and convince yourself that you’ve really stumbled across something special."
