Dear annelidians,
a friend of mine (a mollusk specialist) asked me for advice on shells/ tubes that were found in a core taken from the southern Laguna Madre (a hypersaline estuarine system at the south Texas coast). We are not sure if these are spirorbid tubes or a shells of a gastropods (family Omalogyridae) or maybe even a vermetid gastropods (Dendropoma). Can you serpulid/spirorbid specialists determine by looking at the attached photos if they are spirorbid tubes?
I am looking forward to hearing about your ideas,
