Large aggregations of a new species of yeti crab (Kiwa n. sp.), a peltospiroid gastropod and a new species of stalked barnacle (Vulcanolepas n. sp.) can be seen around the base of the chimneys. Vent limpets, Lepetodrilus n. sp. can be seen on the carapaces of the yeti crabs and anemones are also present. See Rogers, et al. (e1001234).
