black worm with white spots

Can anyone ID this? This isn't my best photo, sorry. I loosely circled it with red. It is smooth and black with white spots. Reminds me of a cow. It has a round mouth at the end with what looks like teeth going around it. It looks like it is eating detritus off this rock. This is the first time I've seen this thing. Anyone know what it is?

I agree -- the description sounds like a sipunculan (correct name for peanut worm) but I can't tell from the photo

yup, it's a peanut worm. I wasn't sure, the colors were throwing me off. It seriously looks like a cow.

This is Seahorsedream's pic, it looks just like mine.
