Abstract

Ceratonereis pseudoerythraeensis Hutchings & Turvey, 1982, an extremely common estuarine nereidid throughout southern and eastern Australia, is synonymised with Ceratonereis aequisetis (Augener, 1913), previously only known from the Swan River, Western Australia. A new record of C. amphidonta Hutchings & Turvey, 1982, from South Australia is given from Victoria. Namalycastis cf. abiuma (Müller, 1871) is described. Material from the type locality of Namanereis quadraticeps (Gay, 1849) is described and compared to N. littoralis Hutchings & Turvey, 1982. The only known record of Pseudonereis masalacensis (Grube, 1878) from Australia is referred to Pseudonereis anomala Gravier, 1901
