Help identifying marine organism

Post by ehelms » Tue Nov 08, 2011 7:06 pm

Hello,
I need to identify this marine organism. From what I can see it has a tripartite body, and is about 9cm in length. I have deduced that it may be a hemichordate, but the exact species eludes me. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! It was found off the coast of Massachusetts.

Thanks for any help!

Wow, a very disgusting-looking critter. Not sure what it might be, tho, but I'll let you know if I manage to id it (:
