Unidentified myzostomids from Panglao, Philippines
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from the photographer: This is a Mysostomatid bristle worm, and as this is the only location I've found images of such I thought it might be of interest. It was 4-5mm in diameter and moved very fast around the feather star branches. That made it difficult to photograph without damaging the feather star.
