Deep-sea 'purple sock' offers clues to early evolution

PERTH, Australia, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Scientists in Australia have found four new deep-sea worm-like species in the Pacific.

They belong to the genus Xenoturbella and look like empty socks -- which is why one of the species has been dubbed "purple sock." Scientists say the strange and antiquated creatures offer clues as to what early life on Earth looked like and how it evolved.

The almost-worms were captured in the Pacific Ocean off the coasts of California and Mexico using remotely operated submersibles. The four species -- Xenoturbella monstrosa, Xenoturbella hollandorum, Xenoturbella profunda and Xenoturbella churro -- are described in a new paper published this week in the journal Nature. Xenoturbella monstrosa is the purple sock.
