AbstractIphione muricata, a Chiton-like Polychaete (Summary): Iphione muricata is an elongate-oval, flattened scale-worm of yellowish-brown colour (Fig. 1) which is distributed all over the Indo-Westpacific region. It was found in the Red Sea near Massawa and Hurghada on the rocky shore, where it clings to the under surface of stones in shallow water and to dead parts of the coral reef. In the night Iphione crawls for some hours, but only a few inches. Musculature (Fig. 4) (with dorso-ventral tissues), the kidney-shaped elytra (Fig. 5d) (with very large, peculiar cells) and special appendages of the scales (Fig. 5c) are clescribed. The taxonomic position is discussed and the species Iphione muricata (Savigny, 1820) is redescribed.
