Abstract

Evidence is presented to show that in the estuaries between Sydney and Brisbane there is a gradation from typical mercierella to typical neopomatus forms. On this evidence it is suggested that neopomatus is synonymous with mercierella, and M. Enigmatica becomes the only brackish water serpulid known from Australia.
