    I have several very tiny, white things on my LR that hide in the holes. I usually only see the legs sticking out. The legs are smooth and white and look like spaghetti but very thin (about the diameter of a piece of thread). Yesterday I saw one completely out on the rock and the body is round but had only four legs. I googled pics of brittle stars and the body shape is the same but the legs are completely smooth. What are these?!

    Hmm....that's not it. The body is definitely flat and round.
