David Muirhead This is a VERY big marine worm,capable of very painful venomous bite,and more often seen by divers at night when foraging actively but on this day it was quite heavily overcast,rather late afternoon,and worm was in some sort of struggle/distress/??being attacked from below substrate by octopus??(guesswork....I cld not see even one occy's arm,but I'm also sure the brittle star present is an incidental critter wrt 'episode' for worm)
David Muirhead PS:worm's length can be roughly assesses based on the paddleweed(Halophila sp. seagrass) also present....Hmmm...

David Muirhead As I've perhaps noted on ealier image pinnings of this cute cephalopod,Idiosepius notoides is thought to be the world's smallest described species of squid,with adults seldom exceeding about 2.5 cm in total length.

David Muirhead Histiogamphelus genus has just the two known species.This is probably H.briggsi(Briggs crested pipefish).Both species (the other is the Rhino pipefish ) are very common in south Australia but distributions overlap with Briggs extending from the east and rhinos from the west.Both species get quite long by pipefish standards and both mimic dead drift sea grass blades so are very cryptic in their usual inshore habitat where they roll and tumble along among sea grass detritus on mainly sandy substrates feeding on mysids mainly.
