Siphopteron cf. quadrispinosum from North East Coast, Taiwan
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: Siphopteron quadrispinosum seems to be a very variable species of Siphopteron. One characteristic feature is the dark line that runs across the parapodia.

Many experts differ in their opinions of what constitutes different species because they do not know (nobody does!) the limits of variability of individual species. It is best to leave things as they are on Nudi Pixel for now until things are better understood.
 

Thanks to Ariel Lee for suggesting identification for this species
