Hylleberg, Jorgen; Nateewathana, Anuwat; Bussarawit, Somchai. (1986). Polychaetes of Thailand, Nereidae [sic Nereididae] (part 1); Perinereis and Pseudonereis, with notes on species of commercial value. Phuket Marine Biological Center, Research Bulletin. 43: 1-22.
In connection with a study of the Annelida Polychaeta of Thailand, the Thai species of Perinereis and Pseudonereis (Nereidae) are reviewed. Four species of Perinereis (P. aibuhitensis, P. quatrefagesi, P. singaporiensis, P. striolata) and two species of Pseudonereis (P. anomala; P. galapagensis) are described and illustrated. A comparison of Perinereis quatrefagesi; from the Gulf of Thailand and from Phuket, Andaman Sea, showed similar intraspecific variation within the two populations. The terminology of nereid parapodia is briefly reviewed. The distribution of possibly commercial polychaetes P. quatrefagesi, Onuphis sp., Marphysa sp. and a spionid along intertidal beach areas on Phuket Island is reported.
