Two new species of <i>Aricidea</i> (Polychaeta, Paraonidae) from Virginia and Florida, and redescription of <i>Aricidea fragilis</i> Webster
Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington
[None. Introduction as follows]
This study of paraonid polychaetes is based, for the most part, on material from two sources: two species from Chesapeake Bay, off Eastern shore, Virginia, collected by Dr. Marvin L. Wass of the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, and two species from the Gulf of Mexico, Seahorse Key, Cedar Keys, Florida, collected by Mr. John L. Taylor of the Fish and Wildlife Service, St. Petersburg Beach, Florida. One new species of Aricidea from each collection is described, and I have taken this opportunity to supplement the descriptions of two of the previously known species of that genus, including that of the type-species, Aricidea fragilis Webster.
The following material of Aricidea (Aricidea) is described: A. fragilis Webster from North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida A. taylori, new species from Florida A. jeffreysii (Mcintosh) from Virginia A. wassi, new species from Virginia
This study was aided in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF GB-1269).
