Luminous, Segmented Worm is a Mystery

“What is this?” asks Amanda in her submission regarding the organism pictured below. “How is it luminous and segmented, in so many colors? Is that a second eyeball half way down its body or a second head? It’s about the size of a cat hair, small to medium in length.” To answer Amanda’s first question, we have no idea what this is. Not only does the description of the worm not sound familiar to us, but the photo is too blurry for us to make out any identifying information. All we can see from the photo is that the worm is very thin, indeed like “cat hair”, and that it does possess the luminescence that Amanda describes. But we cannot think of any worms that are hair-thin, luminous, multicolored, and segmented.
