Google images produced only 3 images of this beast. Two were from 
South Carolina and are of preserved animals where all the color is 
gone. The third is from University of Delaware and is a beautiful 
shot of live (?living) worm. The collar is visible as are the brown 
and white striped gills.

don't know about other images of S. benedicti, but you could use the 
U Del photo as the standard.
