Dear all, I have recently received some beautiful images of a shallow water polychaete female spawning beautiful blue-green eggs into a fan-like egg-mass. I have never seen such a beautiful worm (at least in living conditions, and dead, preserved worms certainly do not keep the color). unfortunately, the photographer was not able to capture a good image of the anterior en of the worm. In my opinion, it may be a phyllodocidae, but I cannot be certain about that.
Have any of you seen something similar alive and, then, have collected it for identification? of, alternatively, have you any idea on the possible identity of this beautiful worm?
