[From introduction] In part 1 of this series (Day, 1951), 144 species of Polychaeta were listed from estuaries or the intertidal zone of Natal and Moçambique. The list included all the known records made before that date and it did not seem likely that the list would be almost doubled within five years. Since then extensive new collections have been made. I have to thank Mrs. Margaret Kalk of Witwatersrand University for allowing me to examine collections from Inhaca Island and Moçambique Island. Further collections have been made by the University of Cape Town during ecological surveys of Durban Bay, various small estuaries along the Natal coast and Morrumbene estuary at Inhambane (Portuguese East Africa). These with two additional records from the literature have increased the number of species to 280.
