dc.description.abstractPolychaete annelids collected in San Quintin Bay were analyzed. Thir- <br /><br />ty-nine stations were sampled with a geological type corer in December 1992, in <br /><br />depths of 2 to 6 m. A total of 677 polychaetes (17 families, 28 genera and 32 <br /><br />species) were recognized. Sixteen species and four genera were recorded for the <br /><br />first time in the area. The best represented families were: Syllidae (124 speci- <br /><br />mens), Lumbrineridae (100), Flabelligeridae (75), Nereididae (74), Cossuridae <br /><br />(73), Spionidae (58), Capitellidae (49), Cirratulidae (44) and Maldanidae (29). <br /><br />The most abundant species were Scoletoma tetraura, Brada villosa, Cossura Can- <br /><br />dida, Neanthes acuminata, Pionosyllis sp., Notomastus sp., Exogone lourei, Prion- <br /><br />ospio heterobranchia, Chaetozone sp. and Exogone dispar. <br /><br /><br /><br />The eastern arm of San Quintin Bay presented slightly higher values of species <br /><br />richness and polychaete abundances. Of the 28 families previously reported for <br /><br />this lagoon, 17 were found and the families Trichobranchidae and Apistobran- <br /><br />chidae are added. To date, there are 81 polychaete species, belonging to 30 fam- <br /><br />ilies, reported from San Quintin Bay.
