Hi everyone,

A colleague doing annotation from ROV images observed this animal (black
circle) and we dont what it could be.
It seems to use the wood piece (?) to live as a hermit grab. I supposed the
yellow structures could be in the anterior region but if its the case it
moves backwards. I think its not a polychaete but i have no idea what could
be. It seems to have about 10 centimetres (maybe more).

The photos were done from 520 and 575 m depth in l’Astrolabe Bay Papua New
Guinea.

Some idea???

Thank you,
Paulo
