Hi,  If you like Oweniids regenerating heads, than you will love the following 

Aguirrezabalaga, F., J. Gil & J.M. Viéitez. 2000. Presencia de Myriochele 
danielsseni Hansen, 1879 (Polychaeta, Oweniidae) en las costas de la Península 
Ibérica. Boletín de la Real Sociedad Española de Historia Natural, Sección

Resumen and English Abstract at:  http://rshn.geo.ucm.es/pub/bio/bio_96_12.htm

In a population located at Zarautz (Euskadi, Bay of Biscay, Spain) several 
tubes of M. danielsseni were found with two specimens inside, one regenerating 
its head and the other its tail, in what seems to be a process of asexual 
reproduction by transversal excision of the body (see figure 5 of the paper).  

All the best,
