Dear all,

I agree with Gisele in that the worm seems to be a sipunculid belonging 
to the genus Phascolion. I have sent to Christina a drawing of one of 
these worms and a picture (follow the link below if you like to see it) 
where it is possible to distinguish the series of dermal hooks often 
present in these species, which seems also to be present in these 
"squatting" worms. Cheers, Dani.
