Zusammenfassung: 
Mass swarming of a basically sessile terebellid polychaete was observed in the free water column off the south-west coast of Madagascar. Specimens are described and tentatively identified as Loimia medusa (Savigny, 1818). Swimming behaviour is documented and the phenomenon is discussed as a flight reaction to an environmental disturbance event.
