Dear Paul,

I am quite sure that is a sipunculian. In our samples from the soft
bottom in the Northern Adriatic Sea  we are often finding Sipunculus
nudus; it is much bigger than your specimen and pink colored (not
transparent as yours), but the form and the body structure is the same.
Hope this helps.

Greetings,
Barbara
