Ryanskiy Andrey Picture is far from perfect, sorry, but it was very small creature, about 5 mm. It was slowly moving forward, by small jerks. And tongue-like white thing in front was exploring surrounds, like hunting. Manado, 8 m depth. ID please!

Boomer William Wing Not sure but looks similar to Oweniidae, Myriochele sp or something like that. I will wait for the Worm God......Arthur....on this one...lol

Ron Silver Is that the same Anker as in Pontonides ankeri?

Boomer William Wing He is really a shrimp God Ron. His name is everywhere on shrimp discovers and the descriptions of new ones. He runs the Crustacean Identification Group on FB plus other Crustacea websites.

Ron Silver Thanx

Ryanskiy Andrey Boomer William Wing, thank you, looks really like Owenia sp. But what a tube worm is doing in the open? Looking for a girl or some beer? :) (Photo from Wikimedia)

Roland Sax thank you Ron, i guess your perfectly right.

Ron Silver Thanx for posting. Many of the differences between genus/species are quite small. Like most things, the more we deal with them, they become more apparent.
