Christmas Tree Worm
 Spirobranchus giganteus (Serpulidae) is a species of polychaete worms living in tropical oceans
The tentacles of Spirobranchus giganteus are arranged in a stacked spiral of several whorls. Each tentacle bears pinnules; the pinnules bear laterofrontal cilia, and the cilia create currents that help the worm to filter their food.
