Northern Feather Duster Worm

Eudistylia vancouveri


I go to this beach quite often, but this was the first time I saw so many of these colonies of worms. Usually I just find a little group in a tide pool, but at very low tide hundreds of them are exposed. Photo 3 shows the worms when they are not hiding in their tubes.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated Machi!
