Abstract

A new species of Neanthes from southern Australia is described. Examination of several species of Neanthes has resulted in a re–interpretation and stronger emphasis of parapodial characters than is usual in descriptions of nereidid species. These characters are used to describe Neanthes tasmani sp. nov. and to distinguishing the new species from the closely related Neanthes bassi Wilson, 1984.
