This long bootlace ribbon worm, Lineus longissimus, was moving rapidly along the side of a pontoon attached to the fish quay in St. Peter Port harbour, Guernsey when I spotted it. I was only able to see a small portion of its length but what I saw was several metres long. Photographed on the 21 September 2007.
