Kristian Fauchald's Polychaeta DB
Recent marine collections by the University of Cape Town have revealed 27 new species of Polychaeta and 32 new records for South Africa. These are described. A new family is erected for the genus Cossura and three new genera are defined. The family paraonidae is revised and a key to 17 specis is drawn up.
