AbstractPolychaetous annelids of the deep-sea off Pacific coast of the northern Honshu through thc research project conducted during 2005-2007 by the National Museum of Nature and Science, Tokyo, were taxonomically examined. A total of 211 identified species and 32 indeterminable species in 43 families of polychaetes are recognized. Fourteen species are new to science: Weberia abyssicola (Polynoidae), Sigalion orientalis (Sigalionidae), Glycera neorobusta, Glycera okai and Glycera semibranchiopoda (Glyceridae), Nereis abyssa and Rullierinereis profunda (Nereididae), Euphrosine digitalis and Euphrosine pseudonotialis (Euphrosinidae), Paradiopatra gracilis (Onuphidae), Naineris japonica (Orbiniidae), Laubieriopsis brevisjaponica (Fauveliopsidae), Pseudoscalibregma orientalis (Scalibregmatidae) and Anobothrus wakatakamaruae (Ampharetidae). Thirty-seven species are newly added to the Japanese polychaetous fauna. Eighty-six species are known also from the northwestern Pacific Ocean, including Sea of Okhotsk and Bering Sea. Forty species are known only from Japan, or endemic. The Fauveliopsidae is newly added to the Japanese fauna.
