In this paper, we prove that 0.227498 is a lower bound for the area of any convex region that contains all of the following “worms”: a unit segment, a V -shaped worm whose convex hull is an equilateral triangle of side length 1 2 , and a U -shaped worm whose convex hull is a square of side length 1 3 . Thus we improve the lower bound for Moser’s worm problem from 0.2194 to 0.227498
