Description

This is the first time I've found Phascolosoma agassizii, or Agassiz's Peanut Worm. It was found under a rock at low tide, and measured between 2 and 3" long, about as wide as a pencil.

Description

There were literally hundreds, if not thousands, of these on the beach. They created small mounds, many of which had one end of the sea cucumber partially exposed.

Another family found these recently and dug one up. They're definitely peanut worms. The picture of the one in the hand is apparently only a part of the organism.
