Phylum Annelida / Class Polychaeta / Subclass Palpata (Sedentaria - tube dwellers) / Order Canalipalpata / Suborder Terebellida / Family Terebellidae
/ Genus Amphitritides (Amphitrite or spaghetti worm) preserved specimen.
Amphitrite, like other terebellids, is benthic and lives in a mud tube, frequently under rocks, and extends tentacles over area sediment to pick up particles of food. There is a cluster of gills behind the tentacles. Amphitrite is sometimes confused with Thelepus crispus, which is also commonly called spaghetti worm.

Generally, our specimens are mailed to the customer in plastic bags with
a small amount of holding solution. I would recommend that you
accumulate some glass jars for displaying the annelids. Jam and jelly
jars will do. Buy enough rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol 70%) to
cover the specimen in the jars. I often use jars with snap lids that I
buy cheaply at yard sales. I have discovered recently that IKEA carries
jars like that, but with silicone ring gaskets to seal the jar and lid.
The other kind have a rubber gasket made by Ball and commonly available
from stores carrying canning supplies. You might consider putting two or
more different annelids in each jar to make comparison easier.
