Found a peanut (worm)!

by

Stella (PC 41) found a peanut worm (Phascolosoma agassizii) this afternoon while marking limpets in the Director’s intertidal.

Phascolosoma agassizii

Its introvert is visible here as the long structure with brown transverse streaks. Also visible are dog whelk (Nucella ostrina) egg capsules above the peanut worm and several spirorbid tube worms on the surrounding rocks.  Very cool find Stella!
