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: Green (2002) gives a key to members of the genus Heteromastus found in the Indian Ocean. Unfortunately, there are variations in the descriptions of Heteromastus filiformis (Claparède, 1864) specimens described by different people. The three specimens found in this collection (Fig. 7), having expanded neuropodial lobes in the posterior abdomen and abdominal hooded hook chaetae with three teeth above the main fang, are more like those described by Day (1967) than those described by Hutchings and Rainer (1981), which had expanded notopodial lobes in the posterior abdomen and abdominal hooded hook chaetae with 11–13 teeth above the main fang. The type locality of Heteromastus filiformis is in the Mediterranean (see Green 2002), so Day’s specimens from South Africa could be a different species to Claparède’s. Glasby et al. (2009) list Heteromastus filiformis as freshwater tolerant, but say that multiple species may have been reported under this name.
