•Diversity of Annelida Series (Cirratuliformia).•🔹Among the most bizarre of annelids are sternapsids (Sternaspidae). The name incorrectly refers to 'breast shield' (Greek, stern= breast; aspis= shield) since the original author got them upside down...the shield is actually at the tail end. Here are two views of a specimen of Sternaspis scutata, named in 1817, from about 40 meters depth in the Mediterranean Sea off Banyuls, France. The upper shot is a ventral view and the anterior segments and head (= introvert) of the worm are to the right. At the tail end is the distinctive hard 'shield' and some filamentous branchiae (gills). The lower view is dorsal and shows the branchiae and the spine-like chaetae of the anterior segments.•🔹⠀
