None. From introduction: "This study of some deepwater polynoids was prompted by the discovery of a single, somewhat mutuated specimen of polynoid collected in 900 fathoms off the mouth of the Columbia River, Oregon. It is herein described as a new species belonging to a new genus, Bathyadmetella. As the name indicates, it shows certain affinities to Admetella Meintosh. The generic standing of Admetella, based on Polynoe (Admetella) longipedata Mclntosh (1885), was first indicated by Darboux (1900). Darboux gave a diagnosis for the genus based on the incomplete description by Mclntosh. The description of A. longipedata has been supplemented subsequently by other polychaete workers, particularly by Augener (1906), Ehlers (1908), and Ditlevsen (1917). Some specimens of A. longipedata in the U.S. National Museum, from the Albatross collections, are in relatively good condition, enabling me to supplement further the previous descriptions and to give an emended diagnosis for the genus. Chamberlin (1919) added 2 new species to Admetella Mclntosh, A. dolichopus and A. hastigerens. The type specimens of both species in the U.S. National Museum have been examined and are herein referred to as A. longipedata. Hartman (1938) examined the type specimen Polynoe(?) renotubulata Moore (1910) in the U.S. National Museum and referred it to Admetella. The specimen has been reexamined and is herein designated the type species for the new genus, Bathymoorea."
