Polychaeta source details

Willey, Arthur. (1902). XII. Polychaeta. In: Sharpe, B.; Bell, J. (eds). Report on the collections of natural history made in the Antarctic regions during the voyage of the "Southern Cross", pp. 262-283, plates 241-246. British Museum, London.

None. Begins: "The collection of Polychaeta which has been handed over to me for description is small, and in some cases the state of preservation of the specimens leaves something to be desired ; but there is sufficient to indicate the existence of a vigorous Annelid fauna in this region of the farthest south. Fifteen species have been identified, of which three seem to be new. Perhaps the most interesting feature of the collection is the addition of the characteristic northern Maldanid, Rhodine loveni, Mgn , to the Antarctic fauna. Besides this, two other genera, not hitherto recorded in the south, are represented by species slightly different from their northern congeners, namely, Gattyana { = Nychia) cristata, n. sp., and Malmgrcnia crassicirris, n. sp. The three species, Travisia herguelensis, Mclnt., Scoloplos kerguelensis, Mclnt., and Thelepus antarcticus, Kbg., are hardly distinguishable from the northern types of the respective genera."
