Gray and Bowhead Whale Amphipod:
Gray and Bowhead Whale Amphipod (Cyamus ceti): This ectoparasitic amphipod is found on Gray Whale (Eschrichtius robustus) in our area, and on bowhead whales further north. It differs from the very similar Little Gray Whale lice (Cyamus kessleri) by the presence of a greater number of "horns" on the ventral side of the rear segments.
