Description

Collected by shoveling substrate from Sheep Pen into a screen box and sifting through. The specimen photographed and sampled could not be identified because it was only a partial glycera since part of it was chopped off during shoveling.

Description from Wikipedia

The genus Glycera is a group of polychaetes (bristle worms) commonly known as blood worms. They are typically found on the bottom of shallow marine waters, and some species (e.g. the common blood worm, Glycera dibranchiata), are extensively harvested along the Northeastern coast of the United States for use as bait in fishing. Another common species is the tufted gilled bloodworm, G. americana.
