Salpas
Salpa Sal"pa (s[a^]l"p[.a]), n.; pl. L. {Salp[ae]} (s[a^]l"p[=e]), E. {Salpas} (s[a^]l"p[.a]z). [NL.: cf. L. salpa a kind of stockfish.] (Zo["o]l.) A genus of transparent, tubular, free-swimming oceanic tunicates found abundantly in all the warmer latitudes. See Illustration in Appendix. [1913 Webster]

Note: Each species exists in two distinct forms, one of which lives solitary, and produces, by budding from an internal organ, a series of the other kind. These are united together, side by side, so as to form a chain, or cluster, often of large size. Each of the individuals composing the chain carries a single egg, which develops into the solitary kind. [1913 Webster]
