World Polychaeta Database (WPolyDb) ''Issued 27th July, 1929''
[None. Introduction as follows:]
In my previous report on the Polychaeta of the “Terra Nova” Expedition (Benham, 1927, p. 49), I wrote of the pelagic families here studied — “They are chiefly from the neighbourhood of Nelson.” This was an error. In originally sorting out the tubes I had seen the name Nelson on a number of labels and I concluded that it referred to the New Zealand town of Nelson, forgetting that the late E. W. Nelson, to whom in fact the labels referred, was one of the naturalists on the expedition. Actually the only collecting done near Nelson was some littoral and land collecting near Admiralty Bay. I wish to thank the Trustees of the Austrahan Museum for the loan of Apstein’s valuable monograph on the Polychaeta of the Plankton Expedition.
