The lumbrinerids (Annelida: Polychaeta) collected in two northwestern Atlantic surveys with descriptions of a new genus and two new species.
Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington
Species of Abyssoninoe, Eranno, Lumbrinerides, Lumbrineris, Paraninoe, and Scoletoma (Polychaeta: Lumbrineridae) from the northwestern Atlantic are reviewed on the basis of numerous specimens collected in two long-term surveys off the east coast of the United States. The genus Lumbrineris Blainville is restricted; the genus Scoletoma Blainville is reinstated and emended; and the new genus Lumbricalus is erected. Two species, Abyssoninoe winsnesae and Eranno petersenae, are new to science. Lumbrineris cingulata (Ehlers) is newly recorded from this area and redescribed. Scoletoma acicularum (Webster and Benedict) is removed from synonymy with Scoletoma fragilis (O. F. Müller), reinstated and redescribed. Scoletoma fragilis is redescribed from northwestern Atlantic material. The description of Scoletoma hebes (Verrill) is supplemented and compared with the closely related Scoletoma verrilli (Perkins). Paraninoe brevipes (McIntosh) is redescribed and compared with Ninoe nigripes Verrill. Lumbrinerides acuta (Verrill) and Scoletoma tenuis (Verrill) are discussed. Key(s) are provided for the known species of Eranno, and for the reported northwestern Atlantic species of Lumbrineris and Scoletoma. The species of Abyssoninoe, Paraninoe, and Lumbricalus are discussed.
