In Nov. '97, I collected Lygdamis sp. off of Key Largo, Florida. Using
David W Kirtley's 1994 Sabellariidae key, I think the worm is Lygdamis
Does anyone have a photo of this worm? A specimen? Or
know of its color patterns on the feeding tentacles?
The median organ and the feeding tentacles on the worm I collected are
pigmented brown. The reason why I'm unsure as to its classification is
that L. rayrobertsi is described as having 3 pairs of cirri on the 2nd
thoracic segment; whereas the worm I collected has 4 pairs of cirri.
Also, Kirtley's key does not mention the brown pigmentation on the feeding
Any help would be appreciated.
