|Bramwell, his Ephemerozoa, and a modern depiction|
During one event lasting a full five minutes he discovered that the organisms had remarkably short lifespans, leading him to name them "Ephemerozoa":
"The creatures, when visible, appear to live only a minute or little more before disintegrating into droplets resembling fine mist, then ceasing to exist altogether. Just as quickly, new creatures coalesce to replace them."Bramwell also noted that the creatures appeared in various colors and sizes, but otherwise had the same basic shape and features. They had no mouths or limbs, only delicate sensory tendrils hanging from their outer surfaces and one or more deep, eye-like organs. They did not interact with each other, even when in groups. Their only activity was to watch Bramwell as intently as he watched them.
