In general macro can be defined as between 1:4 and 1:1. That means that if you make a print (100 x 150 mm) the image is life size or larger. Super macro is anything beyond 1:1. For a 25 mm sensor that means filling the frame with a subject that is smaller than 25 mm long i.e. if you have a 5 mm long nudibranch and it fills a 25 mm sensor you are shooting 5:1 and is supermacro. Your picture to me would appear to be macro not super macro but if the tunicate is a really really small one (like 1 mm tall) then it would be supermacro but I doubt it really is.

Ok, thanks, really.

That's rigth the tunicate is approximatively 2 or 3 inches so this is macro.
