    Osedax is a genus of deep-sea siboglinid polychaetes, commonly called boneworms, zombie worms or bone-eating worms. Osedax is Latin for “bone-eating”, the name alluding to how the worms bore into the bones of whale carcasses to reach enclosed lipids, on which they rely for sustenance.

    Scientists from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) using the submarine ROV Tiburon first discovered the genus in Monterey Bay, California, in February 2002. The worms were found living on the bones of a decaying gray whale in the Monterey Canyon, at a depth of 2,893 m (9,491 ft)
