Polychaete worm in the family Polynoidae. That's really interesting. I haven't seen any specimens that have dorsal cirri with these unusual tips.

A polychaete in the family Polynoidae.

The same polynoid species as in http://www.nudipixel.net/photo/00021813/

Comment from Leslie Harris on photo #21759
Another polynoid species, outwardly somewhat similar to Lepidonotus cristatus. This specimen would have to be examined for an accurate id.

Appears to just a fragment of an amphinomid polychaete, possibly Eurythoe or another genus.

while it might be a scaleworm - which I'm not sure about - it is certainly not Gastrolepidia.

Comment from Leslie Harris on photo #21813
Yes, everyone's right - it's a scaleworm in the family Polynoidae. It looks familiar but I'd need the specimen in front of me to figure out what it is.

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.
