These things are like plasmodial slime molds.  A single cell wall enclosing everything but with many nuclei rather than one.

Article fails on its first line when it describes one of the new Xenophyophores as a "sponge". They are very definitely not animals. From what the article goes on to say, it seems like that's like calling a hermit crab a snail

Same thought here.

Maybe... these are a primitive form and establish a pseudo-fossil record?

FTA: "The CCZ occupies a vast swathe of the Pacific Ocean with extensive seafloor polymetallic nodule deposits, and is targeted for deep-sea mining."

Of course it is. Make sure we screw up the oceans too while we can.

If it's underneath my shoes, I'll call PUP TENTACLE and ask him how's his chin.
