Notes Orange feather duster. A sabellid polychaete worm with distinctively bilobed crown. The crown always lies on the surface of the sediment with the tube hidden and buried. Capable of lightning-fast retraction when disturbed. Identification confirmed by Leslie Harris (Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County) from collected specimens.
