Description

I found these thin pinkish worms under two rocks in the sandy and rocky middle intertidal zone. They are thinner than a toothpick, and about that long. In both cases they were living with dozens of other worms in the muddy sand under a rock, building little tunnels and piling up the sand in tall clumps with holes at the top, as visible in the photo of the single worm.

Description

I think this olive green and reddish polychaete worm is Nereis vexillosa or Banner Sea-nymph. It was found under a rock in the middle intertidal zone at low tide. It was about 2" long when contracted, and 4" long when spread out.

They are found in marine environments from tidal zones to hydrothermal vents, in freshwater, and in moist terrestrial environments.They are bilaterally symmetrical, triploblastic, coelomate organisms.They have parapodia for locomotion. Although most textbooks still use the traditional division into polychaetes (almost all marine), oligochaetes (which include...
