None. Introduction includes:
"Although many collections of polychaetes have been made in the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean area, most of our knowledge concerning these annelids derives from work done by Schmarda (1861), Treadwell (1901, 1917, 1921, 1924a, 1924b, 1928, 1936, and 1939), Augener (1906, 1922a, and 1927b), Monro (1928, 1933a, 1933b, and 1933c), Hartman (1942b and 1951b), and Rioja (1946). More recently, single papers have been contributed by Carpenter (1956), on the polychaetes of the northern Gulf, Renaud (1956), on those of Miami, Florida, and Bimini, Bahamas, and Marsden (1960), on the polychaetous annelids of Jamaica and Barbados.
In spite of the number of faunistic and distributional studies of this area, the present work, as well as the preliminary examination of other collections from northwest Florida, indicates that there is still much to be done in the compiling of a definitive species list of polychaetes for the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean.
The 21 species reported upon in the present paper were collected and kindly sent to me by Dr. Ivan M. Goodbody, Department of Zoology, University College of the West Indies, Jamaica. Duplicate specimens are in the reference collection at the University College, and all type material has been deposited in the collections of the American Museum of Natural History. One additional species (Eunice, new species) will be considered later in a separate paper."
