This volume represents the second of four planned volumes on the marine 
annelids of the Santa Maria Basin and Western Santa Barbara Channel.  
Volume 5 concludes treatment of the so-called "errant" polychaete 

A total of 115 species in 57 genera and 13 families are described.  
Chapters are included on the Syllidae, five scale-bearing families, 
Amphinomidae, Euphrosinidae, and five euniciform families.  Eighteen 
species are new to science as follows: Syllidae (12), Polynoidae (1),
Pholoidae (1), Onuphidae (1), Lumbrineridae (1) Oenonidae (1), and 
Dorvilleidae (1). The chapter on the Syllidae represents a major 
revision of some eastern Pacific genera and species of the subfamilies 
Exogoninae, Eusyllinae, and Syllinae.  All 34 species treated are 
described and illustrated.  The 22 species in the chapter on Polynoidae 
include several poorly known species, illustrated in detail for the 
first time.  One new genus and species is described.   For the
Aphroditidae, only juveniles were available in the MMS collections 
precluding any extensive review of the California fauna.  Sigalionidae 
and Acoetidae include previously known species, with updated 
descriptions and keys.  The common amphinomid, Chloeia pinnata was 
found to have unusual bifurcate notosetae in posterior segments.   In 
the Euphrosinidae, two species were identified and described.  In the 
Oenonidae, Arabella pectinata and A. protomutans are newly reported for 
California.  Keys are provided to all species treated in this volume.

This volume may be ordered from the Santa Barbara Musem of Natural 
History, 2559 Puesta del Sol Road, Santa Barbara, California USA
