It is June which means that the photography team of the journal Nature have picked their favorites from last month.

As usual each photo is accompanied by a thumbnail about it, one of which is a deep-sea worm given a scientific name, Peinaleopolynoe elvisi acknowledging Elvis Presley for the flamboyant clothing he also wore.

The critter has been recovered by both a crew and remotely operated research submarines from the deeps of the eastern Pacific Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, and an area near Costa Rica.

The name fits!
