Autolytus charcoti (Ringed sylid worm)

Hi Johan
In fact it has undergone a genus change and is now known as Epigamia charcoti (Gravier, 1906)

Regards
Georgina

Hi Georgina
I can now be more precise: It is indeed a syllid, and its name is Autolytus charcoti (or, at least, that is the name John Day uses for it; it may have changed genus since them. John Day had only three records, so its quite a find!

George

Hi Johan,
Here's what George Branch says about your segmented worm
I am pretty confident it is a polychate and that it belongs to the family Syllidae

Regards
Georgina

Hi George,
Any ideas on this beastie?

Best wishes
Georgina

Hi Georgina 
Can you help me to id this worm or put me on the right track to investigate further through your scientist friends.We  only get as far as a segmented worm 

Regards
Johan
