Possible new species? “convict worm”
Be on the lookout! We are collecting images of a possible new species nicknamed the “convict worm” because of its black and white bands. It appears to be some kind of tube-dwelling worm. You can see images that have been found already by looking at the Convict Worm Collection or look at recent discussions that include the trend #convict-worm.
You can also “Dive In” to the Seafloor Explorer and start looking for some yourself.
Let us know if you can help narrow down this critter taxonomically!
