Description

This small creature has really puzzled me since I noticed it under water at low tide! Its crown was only about 3/4" across, and a bright red with shades of purple. When I touched it, it appeared to have two openings, like a tunicate, and no operculum, with a squat little body, not a long tube. I kept checking for about 5 minutes to see if it would extend its crown again, and it did not, unlike most tubeworms.

I wonder if this beautiful worm is some type of Eudistylia? The sunset-orange crown looks very feathery, and measured about 1" across. Its tube is short, just about 2" long, and covered in bits of material that must have adhered to it. I noticed it under water at low tide, living beside a Pink-tipped Green Anemone.

Although most textbooks still use the traditional division into polychaetes (almost all marine), oligochaetes (which include...
