I think this is a salp but I would love a proper name.

Hi Todd -- According to Wrobel & Mills "Pacific Coast Pelagic Invertebrates) it's a siphonophore in the genus Praya. We don't see too many photos of these.
Cheers, Leslie

ohhh, I like "we don't see too many photos of these"
Well I'll keep scanning. I'll find you a worm yet!

Thanks,

Todd
