Strange worm

Earlier this morning I turned on my lights and out of a hole on one of my Marshall Island rocks a long, flat, translucent blueish, forked worm thing sucked back into the rock. The tips of the forked end were darker, almost black. Couldn't get a pic of it. It won't come back out of the rock. It must be nocturnal. I'll try to get a pic later tonight. Meanwhile, here's a pic I drew on paint. Pretty close to actual size...

Any ideas?

After looking at the links posted by Diane I have concluded that I have a Green Spoon Echiurid worm. Looks exactly like this picture:

Thank you for your help!
