Phyllodesmium sp. 09 is an unidentified or undescribed species of the genus Phyllodesmium. I call it Phyllodesmium sp. 09, to distinguish it from other species of Phyllodesmium.
It is characterized by its orange body, and by its white cerata, rhinophores, and oral tentacles, all of them are basally translucent tan.
This species is as Phyllodesmium sp. 8 in IPN page 390, let me quote the description: " Body reddish-orange to orange with white apices to the cerata, rhinophores, and oral tentacles. Cerata slightly curved apically with a subapical red spot on the inner curved side. Foot extremely wide."
