Bispira brunnea (Treadwell, 1917)  

Metalaonome brunnea Treadwell, 1917   ; Sabella bahamensis Augener, 1922   ; Bispira brunnea Knight-Jones and Perkins, 1998   ; Tovar-Hernández and Salazar-Vallejo, 2006.

Material examined. Several specimens on dead coral rubble at 7 m (sample CBC-KF 1011) ( PCZL).

Remarks. This is a gregarious species very common in the Caribbean, reaching about 30 mm in length, of which more than half is represented by the crown. The species seems to be confined to the West Indies and Caribbean. Good descriptions and figures are available in Knight-Jones and Perkins (1998) and Tovar- Hernández and Salazar-Vallejo (2006).
