Hi all,

I had to dig to find out anything about this publication. Is that the 
way it should be? JMBA2 Biodiversity Records is apparently an 
online-only open-access publication of the UK Marine Biological 
Association, peer-reviewed, which may have started in 2005. It's poorly 
linked and the table of contents is visible online only to subscribers 
to the Journal of the Marine Biological association of the United 
Kingdom as published by Cambridge.org. For the rest of us JMBAUK only 
publishes a list of the papers for the year in the last issue of the 
printed volume. JMBA2 Biodiversity Records is indexed by Zoological 
Record (only to 2006 yet) but probably almost no one else. All in all 
it's at the moment rather off the radar as a place to publish, and 
possibly certain very short papers end up there at the suggestion of the 
JMBA editors?

This link gives only the current year:


but access to prior papers by publication number (if you know it) is of 
the form:


I noticed three polychaete items:

Hughes, D. J. ; Crawford, M. 2006:  A new record of the vestimentiferan 
Lamellibrachia sp. (Polychaeta: Siboglinidae) from a deep shipwreck in 
the eastern Mediterranean.  .  JMBA2 Biodiversity Records 5198:

El Haddad, M.; Capaccioni Azzati, R. ; García-Carrascosa, A. M. 2007: 
Branchiomma luctuosum (Polychaeta: Sabellidae): a non-indigenous species 
at Valencia Port (western Mediterranean Sea, Spain).  JMBA2 Biodiversity 
Records 5660: 1-8.

Worsfold, T. M. 2006: British records of the interstitial polychaete 
Stygocapitella subterranea (Annelida: Parergodrilidae). JMBA2 
Biodiversity Records. 5429: 1-3.
