Orange you glad?

About 5 years ago, I posted some photos of this distinctive nemertean, so some of you might remember Verrill's Ribbon Worm (Micrura verrilli).  We've only encountered this species a few times, so we were happy to see it again.

Today (4 May 2018) Eric noticed it inside a Giant Kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera) holdfast washed up on the beach.  I only had time to take a quick snapshot, but I thought it would be a worthwhile record to document.

For the older post and a little more information (and some nice photos), see "A colorful tip" from 16 March 2013.
