Also found in the ocean - I neglected to label this sample.


Also this. It was winding up its tail and then untwisting it and propelled itself like that:

Hello Waldo,

the first marine worm is from the phyllum Kinorhyncha (a small pylum with about 100 species).

The second picture is - I think - a cercaria.

Excellent pictures!
