Bottom Line: The seven are listed, with brief notes on these, some previously recorded!Keys are given to the recorded species of Phyllodocidae, Nereididae, Lumbrineridae, Nephtyidae and Capitellidae of the "Northern Bay of Bengal Ecoregion", and to the recognised species of Glyceridae from the Bay of Bengal.The worms in this Ecoregion are subject to the outflows of the Irrawaddy, Ganges, Hooghly and Mahanadi Rivers, and many of them are known to be freshwater tolerant.

ABSTRACT
Of seven species of polychaetous annelids collected from the intertidal zone of Sitakunda coast, Chittagong, Bangladesh, five were new records for the country. The seven are listed, with brief notes on these, some previously recorded! species and others housed in the collections of the Natural History Museum, London. Keys are given to the recorded species of Phyllodocidae, Nereididae, Lumbrineridae, Nephtyidae and Capitellidae of the "Northern Bay of Bengal Ecoregion", and to the recognised species of Glyceridae from the Bay of Bengal. The worms in this Ecoregion are subject to the outflows of the Irrawaddy, Ganges, Hooghly and Mahanadi Rivers, and many of them are known to be freshwater tolerant.

Mentions: The “Northern Bay of Bengal Ecoregion” of the “Bay of Bengal Province” of the “Western Indo-Pacific Realm” was devised by Spalding et al. 2007, and it is shown in map form in Claus et al (2014). The ecoregion extends from between Ye and Dawei (14.61°N, 97.90°E) in Myanmar/Burma to near Konark (19.87°N, 86.11°E) in Odisha/Orissa, India (Fig. 1), and reaches from the coastline to 370km offshore (or the 200m isobath if this is further offshore). It thus includes the Gulf of Martaban, the mouths of the Irrawaddy, Ganges and Hooghly Rivers, and most of the mouths of the Mahanadi River (one distributary leads to the Chilika Lake, usually referred to as Chilka Lake, which has its outlet to the sea in the neighbouring “Eastern India Ecoregion” of the “Bay of Bengal Province”). Southern Myanmar is in the “Andaman Sea Coral Coast Ecoregion” of the “Andaman Province”.
