Dear annelidans,

I am looking for informations on parasitism (polychaete/nematods) We have
found in Trawl samples Polynoidae with parasitic nematodes (north atlantic
abyssal plain). The worms are between 5 and 10 cm length and the nematods
are often taller than 10cm. The nematods are in the polychaete coelomic
cavity!!

This is very spectacular. Have you ever observed such a thing???
Thank you for all informations.

bye
Nathalie
