Begins: "The Polychaeta of this report were collected by Dr. J. S. Colman during the 1937-38 expedition of Lord Moyne's M.Y. Rosaura. They fall into four groups : (1) shallow-water , coastal, benthic forms from east and south-west Greenland and from Labrador; (2) similar forms from the West Indies and off British Honduras; (3) deep water, benthic forms obtained off Grenada and off the Canary Islands ; ( 4) pelagic forms obtained at various positions from the West Greenland Current to the Equator. There are altogether 71 species belonging to 41 genera. I have established a new genus of Maldanids on a specimen taken off British Honduras which has the dorsal surface of several segments provided with a coating of long papillae which I believe to be branchial. As far as I know, this is the first record of branchial papillae in the family. I have also described a new Eunice related to E . cariboa Grube from deep water off Grenada and a new variety of Fauvel's Harmothoe joubini from deep water off the Canary Islands. Much of the ground represented by the present collection has already been covered in a masterly fashion by Prof. P. Fauvel in his reports on the collections made from the yachts of Prince Albert I of Monaco, and I have decided, instead of writing a full report, simply to give a list of the species with their stations and to restrict myself to the description of the new forms and to commentary only in very special cases. Some of the material, especially the pelagic forms (excluding the Tomopterids), is very remarkably preserved and is thoroughly suitable for commentary, but I repeat that much of the ground has already been covered.
