Unidentified polychaete worms from Anilao, Philippines
Identification verified by Leslie Harris
 

Identification is verified by Leslie Harris, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Leslie Harris: The bristle worm is in family Amphinomidae. I've seen pictures of the same species identified as the genus Chloeia. It might be this genus or it might belong to Notopygos - the picture doesn't show enough of the characters needed to distinguish between the two. Right now I'm in Saipan and hope to collect some of these little beauties so I can finally put a name on them.
