Discovery by Brazilian and US researchers could change the classification of two species, which appear more akin to jellyfish than was thought. The tube anemone Isarachnanthus nocturnus is only 15 cm long but has the largest mitochondrial genome of any animal sequenced to date, with 80,923?base pairs.
