Abstract
    This list was initially drawn up from ‘Siphonophores and Velellids’ by P. A. Kirkpatrick and P. R. Pugh (1984), and additional species added from other publications covering species recorded within the ERMS geographic area. The reference list includes all taxonomic papers covering any new and redescribed species found in the area, but only those distributional papers published from 1990 onwards. A more comprehensive literature list will be obtainable from a monograph entitled ‘Siphonophora (Cnidaria, Hydrozoa) of Canadian Pacific waters.’ by G. M. Mapstone and M. N. Arai which is due to be published shortly.


    Since the species list is a reflection of sampling effort, it is likely that more species will be added in the future; many Siphonophora species have a cosmopolitan distribution.
    P. R. Pugh kindly advised on the validity of species included in a world list from which this ERMS was derived.
