Is anyone able to tell me what species this is? Leslie? Are you there? :)

Family Syllidae, subfamily Autolytinae. I'll check my references when I get to work to see if I can find a matching species. It's a female up in the water column to release her eggs.

Thank Leslie! Is this signified by the curled tail? I did notice that it wasn't uncurling its tail when it swum.

 

For the record, this shot was taken at Point Lonsdale, Victoria, Australia.
