Diplomacy — one of the most numerous planktonic organisms, were discovered about ten years ago, thanks to the discovery of a single gene isolated from marine samples. They long time were not caught and were not observed in their natural habitat.
The first pictures of diplonemids managed to make the zoologists, gathered samples in the deep waters off the coast of California. It turned out that they are characterized by rapid metabolism and source of food are algae and other microscopic organisms.
