ABSTRACT Two new species of spionids are described from the Caribbean Sea, Malacoceros cariacoensis n. sp. from Venezuelaand Rhynchospio harrisae n. sp. from Guana in the Virgin Islands, British Virgin Island. Malacoceros cariacoensis n.sp. can be differentiated by the shape of the prostomium, which has two short frontal horns and the posteriorportion laterally prolonged into a faintly demarcated, double-looped nuchal organ, extending to the base of setiger2, a reduction in the size of setiger…

Polydora and related genera (Polychaeta: Spionidae) from the Grand Caribbean region

The study of previously unidentified material of Spionidae from the Grand Caribbean region resulted in the discovery of five new species in four genera: Boccardia salazari, Dipolydora anatentaculata, Polydora quintanarooensis, D. contoyensis sp.

Morphology and biology of a new Rhynchospio species (Annelida: Spionidae) from the South China Sea, Vietnam, with the review of Rhynchospio taxa

Adults of a new spionid polychaete, Rhynchospio nhatrangi, inhabit sandy tubes on muddy sand intertidal flats in an estuary of Nha Trang Bay, southern Vietnam, and are unique among spionids in the changes in the arrangement of hooks during ontogenesis.

Two new species of Paraprionospio (Polychaeta: Spionidae) from the Grand Caribbean region and comments of the genus status

Material earlier recorded from the Grand Caribbean region as Paraprionospio pinnata (Ehlers, 1901) was reexamined and referred to two new species: Paraprionospio tamaii sp. nov. and P. yokoyamai sp.

Generic interrelationships within the Spionidae (Annelida: Polychaeta)

Abstract The phylogenetic relationships of spionid genera are estimated from parsimony analyses of morphological characters, with Trochochaetidae, Poecilochaetidae and Uncispionidae as outgroups. A

A new species of Malacoceros (Polychaeta: Spionidae) from Kick'em Jenny, a hydrothermally active submarine volcano in the Lesser Antilles Arc

A new spionid polychaete, Malacoceros jennicus, is described from the crater of a hydrothermally active submarine volcano near Grenada in the Caribbean, Lesser Antilles Arc region and stable isotope analysis of 13C and 15N indicate mixed feeding on photosynthetic and hydrothermal vent source material.

Malacoceros samurai, a new species of Spionidae (Annelida: Polychaeta) from hydrothermal vent chimney walls on the south East Pacific Rise

Although this species is described in the genus Malacoceros, it possesses unidentate hooded hooks and anterior scalpel-like aristate neurosetae, both characters which clearly differentiate it from other species of the same genus.

New record and new species of Scolelepis (Polychaeta: Spionidae) from the Venezuelan Caribbean

Scolelepis (S.) andradei is distinguished by the fusion of the anterior and posterior branchiae to the notopodial lamellae, bidentate notopidial hooded hooks starting from setigers 23–29, and the absence of notopadial hooks.

A review of the classification of the Class Polychaeta (Annelida) with comments on the characters used to identify the different included taxa has led to the recognition of seventeen orders. All taxa

Partial revision of Scolelepis (Polychaeta: Spionidae) from the Grand Caribbean Region, with the description of two new species and a key to species recorded in the area

Five Scolelepis species from the Gulf of Mexico and Western Atlantic Ocean are reported and certain species previously synonymized with Scolelepis (S.) squamata are revised. Four species are

Redescription of the Spionid Polychaete Malacoceros (Malacoceros) indicus (Fauvel 1928)

It is pointed out that use of modern optics in descriptions of setal characters makes it desirable to redescribe certain older species, in order to avoid the establishment of new species that will later have to be synonymized.
