This photobiont is segmented - and each segment bears a superficial resemblence to Coclea. There are plants on Earth that have segments like this one - but given that photobionts have far more organs than Earth's plants, it's possible that this segmentation is also a precursor to more complicated organs - much like it was with Earth's worms and arthropods. --Jane Van Susteren, Exobiology Lead
