Yesterday, we did some open water dives, a few miles off Dana Point. Saw some really odd-ball critters. This guy is segmented but, alas, not a worm! An amphipod perhaps?
Bingo! Another hyperid amphipod. Take at look at this page of Peter Brueggeman's for a great close up of an antarctic species - http://peterbrueggeman.com/nsf/fguide/arthropoda36.html
Guess you have't seen too many pelagic polychaetes yet....
So many worms, so little time
