Worm from the Philies

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!

 

Let me first introduce myself to you. Im a women diver from Holland. I only dive in warm waters and the most dives I have made in the Red Sea and a long time ago (80/90's) on the Maldives. Last month was the first time in the Philippines. Great!!! :bottled:

 

A lot of names I can find on different sites but I'm still looking for names of some creatures and I hope you folks can help me to find the names. I know, sometimes it is very difficult but maybe only the *family* name will do. :P

 

This worm was found on a nightdive in shallow water (2-3 meters) He was very long, maybe 1 or 2 meters. Whit the light of the lamp he/she crolls quickly back in a hole in the sandy bottum. Place: Moal Boal-Philippines.

 

Thanks and hope to hear from you!

 

greetings from Holland

It's a nemertean. The big ones without distinct color patterns are hard to identify. Important characters necessary for identification include details of the head like position & shape of the mouth, lateral slits, etc. Unfortunately none of these show in you picture, sorry!
