Four species of Elvis worm identified

Still Waters

Recommended Posts

Posted (IP: Staff) ·

A team of researchers from the University of California and CNRS-Sorbonne Université has identified four species of deep-sea worms that until now have been referred to as Elvis worms. In their paper published in the journal ZooKeys, the group describes the worms, how they were named, and some odd behavior they managed to capture on video.

The researchers described the worms as a few among many that they have been collecting from the seabed over a period of years. Known officially as scale worms, the team had taken to describing them collectively as Elvis worms because their iridescent plated covered shells reminded them of Elvis's sequined jumpsuits.

probably they used to live in shallow waters back in the Cambrian/Ordovician period, then slowly they moved deeper and deeper. Thats what i can come up with, plausible?
