Hi Donald, 
Thank you very much for your help and interest. Until now I had received two responses. Ron Karlson who thinks it's a hydrozoan actinula larva, and Gustav Paulay who thinks it's an anemone (and not a hydrozoan because of the pharynx that is visible in the photo). At the moment I have no data on the size of the organism, but this was collected in a trawl from a depth of 30 meters to surface.

Thank you very much.
