Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEcology Intertidal sandy substrate near mangroves [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomic remark This species was originally decribed from an intertidal mangrove site in Hong Kong (Erséus, 1990), but never before recorded from Australia. The Australian material differs from the type specimens by its more numerous anterior somatic chaetae (up to five per bundle, as opposed to two or three per bundle), and slightly smaller male ducts and spermathecae. Moreover, all of the penial chaetae of the Dampier worms appear single-pointed, whereas a few such chaetae were bifid (possessing a small upper tooth) in the Hong Kong material (see Erséus, 1990b: figure 1E). For the time being, these differences are regarded as intraspecific. [details]
