Palolo \Pa*lo"lo\, n., or Palolo worm \Palolo worm\ . [From
native name.] (Zo["o]l.)
A polystome worm (Palolo viridis) that burrows in the coral
reefs of certain of the Pacific Islands. A little before the

are gathered and highly esteemed as food by the natives. An
allied species inhabits the tropical Atlantic and swarms in
June or July.
