Fig 2

Nauplius of Balaenophilus manatorum collected from a hatchling of loggerhead sea turtle, Caretta caretta.

Note appendages that are used to grasp on the host: antennae (black arrows) and mandibles (white arrows). Also note the dentate coxa of antennae (grey arrows) that functions as a food-processing appendage.
