Hi all,

I see the nameless 'squidworm' planktonic polychaete of 2007 is getting another run in the news media, as a highlighted organism in conjunction with COML wind-up publicity this week. This must be due to the great photo taken of it by Laurence Madin, as it is still unnamed even to family in their releases, or anywhere.
