To anyone who can help:

	Hafa Adai! I am a Fisheries Biologist with the Division of Fish and
Wildlife in Saipan, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. I am
interestdin obtaining identification references for polychaetes. My
graduate work at Humboldt State University in N. California was involved
with the identification of benthic infauna.  I used numerous guides for
identification purposes; Fauchald, Smith and Carlton, Hobson and Banse,

	I still keep my 'eye open' for polychaetes during the course of
fieldwork, but unfortunately do not have the aforementioned guides
available to me, so generic or specific ID is difficult.  Does anyone know
where I can obtain these and/or other guides pertinent to this region? 

        Does anyone have reference to articles, publications, concerning 
species of polychaetes that occur on coral reefs? Has anyone completed 
work on such? 	

I would sincerely appreciate any information or guidance on this matter.

	Best Regards
	Mike Trianni
