The intertidal polychaete (Annelida) fauna of the Sitakunda coast (Chittagong, Bangladesh), with notes on the Capitellidae, Glyceridae, Lumbrineridae, Nephtyidae, Nereididae and Phyllodocidae of the "Northern Bay of Bengal Ecoregion".

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.

Figure 4: Dorsal view of anterior end of Lycastonereis indica.

Mentions: This species has no paragnaths on the pharynx and only three pairs of tentacular cirri (Fig. 4). It is, however, not a member of the genus Namanereis because it has parapodia with two distinct branches (notopodium and neuropodium) each with chaetae. Members of Namanereis only have one parapodial lobe with chaetae. This species is not mentioned in Pramanik et al. (2009) but is recorded by Alam et al. (1996) as common on the Halishahar Coast and Misra (1999) states that the species is endemic in north-east coast of India. It is relatively common here, with nine specimens found.
