Regenerating Heads!

Aloha All,

I apologise in advance for my ignorance, but while processing some subtidal 
sand samples I wasn't surprised to see big Oweniid heads regenerating tails, 
but I was shocked to see tails regenerating heads!  I have since found out 
about Greg Rouse's Proscoloplos bondi doing the same trick.  How widespread is 
this phenomenon?  I would have suspected it limited and related to a somewhat 
primitive Oweniid nervous system.  Pic available at this url:

Cheers,
Brian
