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".

Muir AI, Hossain MM - Zookeys (2014)

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 single 6.5 mm long worm found (Fig. 6) is probably this species, which has been well described by Imajima (1987) under the name Nephtys oligobranchia. The species has been transferred to the genus Micronephthys by Dnestrovskaya and Jirkov (2010), although they say the family needs to be fully reviewed. Glasby et al. (2009) list Nephtys oligobranchia as a freshwater- and saltwater-tolerant species, found in the Palaearctic and Oriental regions inhabiting lake/river freshwater, estuary and coastal lagoons (fresh-brackish) including supra-littoral areas and inland lakes. Shen and Qi (1982) say it is “favored in normal or rich trophic waters”, as opposed to over-trophic or polluted waters.
