Bdelloura Candida – by BR

Bdelloura candida is a flatworm; they live on horseshoe crab’s legs.  They have a Bdellourasymbiotic relationship and do not harm the horseshoe crab.  The worm eats all the crab’s scraps.  They live from Maine down through the North Western Atlantic.  They reproduce by eggs stored in cocoons.
