Black-Spotted Tube Worm GALLERYBranchiomma nigromaculata
The Crown is horseshoe-shaped with a distinctive pattern of little "Arrows" on the radioles (feathers). I've seen them in most environments and usually in 3-4 feet of water. Their parchment tubes hidden in crevices and under rocks. Their colors are banded shades of brown and white. I've seen solitary specimens and I've also seen areas with several dozen living in close proximity. They are not extremely shy. The unique thing about these worms is the visible rows of eyespots on the radioles (feathers).
