Possible new species? “convict worm”

Convict WormBe 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!
