Opportunity in modelling polychaetes in 3D

Dear Annelida folk,

The digimorph project at Digimorph.org does "2D and 3D visualizations of the
internal and external structure of living and extinct vertebrates, and a
growing number of 'invertebrates'."


If you have a hard-bodied worm or an interesting worm fossil that could 
usefully be examined by high resolution xray CT then here may be an 
opportunity.  Contact Julian Humphries <humphries at mail.utexas.edu>

with some arthropods.  I would like to try a few polychaetes.  I think we 
won't have much luck with real soft-bodied specimens, but taxa with scales or 
plates, or hard cirri or hard mouthparts or  tubes all might work.  Anything 
in the 25-100 mm size range would be good."
