The folks at io9 have some excellent/terrifying news for H.P. Lovecraft fans: Scientists have just discovered (mini) Cthulhu, in the form of two octopus like protists that live in the stomachs of wood-digesting protists. Meet Cthulhu macrofasciculumque and Cthylla microfasciculumque.
They seem to be hot on the beat of Cthulhu-ology these days, what with the discovery of this particularly Lovecraftian fossil and all.
I, for one, welcome our tentacled overlords.
