Abstract[None. Work starts as follows:]
The nereid worms of Japan have been studied by Marenzeller (1879), McIntosh (1885), Moore (1903), Izuka (1903, 1908, 1912), Monro (1926), Treadwell (1931), Okuda (1933, 1935, 1937, 1938, 1939, 1950), Fauvel (1936), Okuda & Yamada (1954), Imajima & Hartman (1964), Imajima (1967, 1968), Imajima & Hayashi (1969) and Imajima & Gamô (1970), and by these studies 25 species or subspecies in ten genera have been named.
In the present study the Nereidae occurring in Japanese coastal areas are recognized for 41 species, subspecies and variety in 13 genera; they include one new genus, four new species and one new subspecies. Two genera, Leonnates and Tambalagamia are added to the Japanese fauna.
Most of the descriptions are based on collections obtained from intertidal zones, along algal overgrown rocky shores or from among attaching organisms: Nereis surugaense comes from Suruga Bay, in 910 to 1430 m.
The author is indebted to the staffs of the Marine Laboratories of Universities for their valuable contributions to the author's collection, and to other persons who gave some specimens. All specimens were collected by the author unless otherwise stated, under Material examined. The author wishes to thank Dr. Olga Hartman of the Allan Hancock Foundation of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California for reading the manuscript.
Holotype and paratype specimens are deposited in the National Science Museum, Tokyo.
