Second time I run into this worm but no nearer to an ID

Nice, the first view reminds of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulu :lol:

Lovely video 75RR. Excellent detail, definitely Cthulu ;)

Have decided that it is unlikely to be Cthulu given that he is a fictional cosmic entity ...


However, after a little more research I think Fabricia stellaris is a better candidate
