Members will recall the enquiry from the BBC Wildlife magazine lady? The 
'bobbit worm' photo has duly appeared in a nice one page 'Amazing facts' 
spread in the September '99 issue (vol17(9) - Mr Badger on the front). It's 
credited to Roger Steene who has already published a photo in one of his 
books and presumably submitted it in hope of a few $$$ from the BBC. 
There are definite signs that the caption has been influenced for the better 
by information from Annelida.
