Pettibone, Marian H.
Scaled polychaetes (Polynoidae) associated with ophiuroids and other invertebrates and review of species referred to Malmgrenia McIntosh and replaced by Malmgreniella Hartman, with descriptions of new taxa
Included in this report are new distribution records and descriptions of 44 species of Polynoidae distributed between two subfamilies: Lepidonotinae, with Hermenia verruculosa Grube and Lepidonopsis humilis (Augener); and Harmothoiniae, with Subadyte pellucida (Ehlers), and three species and one new combination of Hololepidella Willey. The study includes a replacement of Malmgrenia McIntosh, 1874 (= indeterminable) with Malmgreniella Hartman, 1967, emended, with a redescription of M. dicirra Hartman, 1967, the type species, and a review and revision of the species that have been referred to Malmgrenia, resulting in 13 new combinations (with 2 new synonyms) and 19 new species of Malmgreniella. In addition, three new genera are added, including Paragattyana, for P. micropoides (Augener), new combination, and P. intesi, new species; Rullieriella, for R. monoechinata (Rullier), new combination, with synonym Parahalosydna chryostictus Hutchings and Rainer; and Wilsoniella for W. furcosetosa (Loshamn), new combination. Most of the species show a more or less close association with other invertebrates, including echinoderms (ophiuroids, spatangoid echinoids, synaptid holothurians), coelenterates (hydrocorals), and other polychaetes (arenicolids, terebellids, and chaetopterids).
