Leonnates crinitus n.sp., L. bolus n.sp. and Platynereis uniseris n.sp. are described from Northern Australia. A systematic account of Leonnates, Platynereis and Solomononereis known from Australia and a key to species recorded from Australia is provided. HUTCHINGS, P.A. & A. REID, 1991. The Nereididae (Polychaeta) from Australia Leonnates, Platynereis and Solomononereis. Records of the Australian Museum 43(1): 47-62.

Nereididae (Annelida: Phyllodocida) of Lizard Island, Great Barrier Reef, Australia.
The Lizard Island nereidid fauna was found to be represented by 14 genera and 38 species/species groups, including 11 putative new species, including five first records for Australia. Expand
Catalogue of non-marine Polychaeta (Annelida) of the World
An annotated checklist and bibliography of 197 species (representing 78 genera and 26 families) of non-marine polychaetes of the world is presented, including synonymies, information on ecology,Expand
Taxonomy of reproductive Nereididae (Annelida) in multispecies swarms at Ambon Island, Indonesia
Ten species of reproductive Nereididae are described, including a new combination, formerly Ceratonereis marmorata; epitokous modifications are described for both sexes of each species including taxonomically important features such as body colour and number of pre-natatory chaetigers. Expand
Phylogeny of nereidids (Polychaeta, Nereididae) with paragnaths
The most parsimonious trees could not be rooted such that the selected ingroup, ‘Nereididae with paragnaths’, was monophyletic, causing the monophyly of the Nereidinae as currently defined to be rejected. Expand
New Records of the Nereidid Polychaete Leonnates persicus from Japan, Korea, and Thailand, with a Redescription of the Holotype
The nereidid polychaete Leonnates persicus Wesenberg-Lund, 1949 is recorded from coasts of Indian Ocean and western Pacific Ocean, from the coasts of Japan, Korea, and Thailand, based on examination of 27 specimens collected from shallow subtidal or intertidal muddy flats. Expand
A review of paragnath morphology in Nereididae (Polychaeta)
This work provides the first comprehensive overview of these important morphological characters, with the aim of encouraging more consistent observation and use of a standardized terminology in future studies. Expand
Macro-benthic invertebrates associated with the black sponge Sarcotragus foetidus (Porifera) in the Levantine and Aegean Seas, with special emphasis on alien species
The number of species and the number of individuals were significantly and positively correlated with the sponge volume, and the species assemblage patterns determined were significant correlated with a set of environmental variables such as nitrogen, phosphate and dissolved oxygen. Expand
Tropical polychaete community and reef dynamics: Insights from a Malayan Sabellaria (Annelida: Sabellariidae) reef
The present investigation describes the only documented polychaete reef of western Peninsular Malaysia, which has been previously reported on in two other studies, and investigates the ecology of tropical sabellariid reefs from Southeast Asia. Expand
Complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the giant mud worm Paraleonnates uschakovi Khlebovich & Wu, 1962 (Polychaeta: Nereididae)
The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the giant mud worm Paraleonnates uschakovi (Polychaeta: Nereididae) was determined in this study for the first time and showed inversion in the positions of three tRNAs compared to the mitogenome sequences of Perinereis aibuhitensis, P. nuntia and Platynereis dumerilii.

Benthic infaunal community structuring in an acidified tropical estuarine system
Infaunal estuarine communities, which are typically adapted to survive relatively acidic conditions, may be less exposed, less sensitive, and less vulnerable than epibenthic or pelagic communities to further acidification of above-sediment waters. Expand


Taxonomy of polychaetes from the Hawkesbury River and the southern estuaries of New South Wales, Australia
The polychaete fauna of the Hawkesbury River and some other estuarine areas in central and southern New South Wales is described. The majority of material comes from Merimbula, Jervis Bay, PortExpand
