The Southern California Association of Marine Invertebrate Taxonomists 
(SCAMIT) has just announced the availability of the 4th edition of its 
taxonomic list.  This is an list that includes encountered polychaete species 
collected in various marine programs in Southern California and is 
electronically available for free.  

The 4th edition reflects the organisms collected from over 17,700 infaunal 
samples at 1,700+ sites and 4,300+ otter trawls at 650 sites within the 
habitats covered. There are 2,076 species-level taxa on the list 
representing 15 phyla, 37 classes, 127 orders, 526 families, and 1,229 
genera.  The list has also been emended to reflect nomenclatural changes 
since the previous edition.  

The Listing is in Portable Document Format (PDF) and is downloadable as 
a self-extracting zip file. The downloadable file is approximately 1,200KB.  
After downloading the self-extracting zip file, double click on it to unzip the 
document.  The default "Unzip to" folder is your Windows/Temp folder  

Once extracted, the PDF document may be viewed, searched and/or 
printed using the Adobe Acrobat Reader.  The Reader is distributed by 
Adobe free of charge and may be downloaded from their web site 

While the 4th Edition in PDF is freely available to members and non-

sided copy as a benefit of membership.  These will be sent to the members 
as soon as available from the printers.
