[Annelida] strange worm

I attached the reference from the source that Dr. Erseus mentioned.

This species can be exceedingly common and abundant in shifting sand
communities of large rivers in the US Southeastern coastal plain. I have
seen them from South Carolina.

They often are accompanied in that community by a weird array of (mostly
chironomid) predators adapted to that community, that are likely feeding on
this worm. Examples of these taxa include *Chernovskiia* and *Robackia*,
and the mayfly *Dolania*.
