Díaz-Díaz, Oscar Felipe.; Parapar, Julio; Moreira, Juan. (2018). A new species of genus Owenia Delle-Chiaje, 1844 (Annelida: Oweniidae) from the coast of Venezuela. Cahiers de Biologie Marine. 59(6): 589-597.
The study of several specimens belonging to the genus Owenia Delle Chiaje, 1844 (Annelida; Oweniidae), collected from the north-western coast of the Gulf of Venezuela, Caribbean Sea, revealed the presence of a new species, Owenia vieitezi sp. nov. The new taxon differs from other closely related species in presenting a branchial crown provided with three pairs of tentacles, and brown coloration in the ventral region of the peristomium and dorsal and lateral tentacles of the branchial crown.
