University of Hawai'i Press
Publication Date


The pilargid polychaete Talehsapia annandalei Fauvel, 1932, has been rediscovered in its type locality and its taxonomic affinities are clarified. The genus is set off from remaining synelmins based on possession of palps completely fused and absence of tentacular cirri. The "jawlike" structure is rather a symmetrical, discontinuous pair of denticulated bands and is not a true jaw.
