Annelid (Segmented Worm)

Description:

Anyone know the ID on the annelid (segmented worm)? It had a blue/green/iridescent sheen on top, and was bring red/yellow underneath. Truly a beautiful animal!

Habitat:

I came across this beautiful worm in the intertidal zone on a beach in Parksville, BC. It was underwater (just a few inches deep) but above the sand at the time of spotting.

Notes:

All photos by me. Connect with me at www.alenaesphotography.com :)
