Tubulanus rhabdotus is an unarmed Nemertean worm that is tube dwelling. This animal secretes a cellophane-like tube which it attaches it to various substrata, most commonly among sessile, aggregated organisms such as ascidians and oysters. The head and body have dark transverse bands that give this worm a segmented appearance. T. rhabdotus grows to approximately 15 cm.
