Abstract

A new genus, Paleaequor, of the polychaete family Chrysopetalidae is described. Three new species: Paleaequor setula, the type species from north-eastern Australia; P. psamathe from western Mexico; and P. nicoyensis from the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, are described. Two previously described species, Paleanotus heteroseta Hartman, 1945 and Bhawania brevis Gallardo, 1968, are referred to the new genus. A key to the species of Paleaequor is provided and comparison between the Western Pacific and American species made.
