Odontosyllis  sp. 1

( Figs 1View FIGURE 1. A C, E, 3 F–N)

Material examined. AM W. 47187, MI QLD 2380 (1 on 2 SEM pins).

Remarks. This specimen has anterior chaetigers with bidentate chaetae, with a minute distal tooth, similar to those of O. robustus  n. sp. ( Figs 3View FIGURE 3 F–I). However, middle and posterior chaetigers also show unidentate chaetae, similar in shape to those of O. globulocirrata Hartmann-Schröder, 1981  ( Figs 3View FIGURE 3 J–N). It has a similar colour pattern to O. robustus  n. sp. but with orange spots on alternating parapodia, at the base of dorsal cirri ( Figs 1View FIGURE 1. A C, E). First report from Queensland.

Habitat. Halimeda  algae, in shallow waters.

Distribution. Australia (Queensland).
