A fine line

 
It's hard for me to resist posting pictures of ribbon worms.  This is a close-up of a Six-lined Ribbon Worm (Tubulanus sexlineatus).  Here's the entire animal:



Photographed in the low intertidal zone on 16 June 2018.

P.S.  For more photos of this species, check out the post called "All lined up" on 20 March 2015.

So pretty! We found a T. sexlineatus the first day of inverts lab. It was my first time seeing one in person, which was very nice.

I'm still waiting for you to find a hoplonemertean to do a stylet prep on (Eric knows how!). :)
