fight and ctenophore

pelagic ctenophore
benthic ctenophore
Proto-Indo-European *peḱ- "to pluck the hair" in the extended form *peḱt- became Proto-Germanic *feχtan "to fight" and English fight.

The zero-grade form *pḱt-en- became Greek κτείς, κτενός kteis, ktenos "comb", borrowed into English in ctenophore, the comb jelly.
