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 5: Anterior end of Gesaneris malayensis. A Dorsal view B Ventral view.

Mentions: Six specimens of this species (Fig. 5) were found. The species, originally published as Lumbriconereis malayensis, was redescribed by Carrera-Parra (2006a) and transferred to a new genus. It is a new record for Bangladesh according to Pramanik et al. (2009). It is very similar to the description of Eranno papillifera (Fauvel, 1918) by Oug (2002). This latter species was also first published as a Lumbriconereis species. The most important difference is that in Gesaneris the maxillary apparatus has four pairs of maxillae, whereas in Eranno there are five pairs of maxillae.
