[Annelida] Unidentified animal (with pictures, sorry)

I really don't know, but what if these yellow parts are the reflecting scales of a scale-worm and the "antenna" are the anal cirri?
And as they construct tubes, perhaps Acoetidae?
Just guessing
Best wishes from Amsterdam

Hi Paulo,

It looks like it could be a corophid-like amphipod or tanaid crustacean, although very large if your 10 centimeter size estimate is correct. The wood piece looks like a mucus/detritus tube and if you zoom in on the picture there appears to be a pair of antennae above the yellow structures which also may be a pair of modified antennae? I would be interested to hear what other folks think.

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 Bonifacio
