Abstract: Fabriciola berkeleyi Banse is the only species of Fabriciola reported
from the California coast. It was described by Hartman as Fabricia berkeleyi in
her Atlas of Sedentariate Polychaetous Annelids from California.. Hartman's
specimens are redescribed and compared to the type specimens from British
Columbia. California specimens differ from type specimens in that the former
have abdominal neuropodial pin-head setae and the extent of body pigmentation
is more restricted. Because the type series is in poor condition,· the California
specimens are referred to F. cf. berkeleyi until better comparative material from
the type locality can be examined. A new species from southern California,
Fabriciola brevibranchiata, is described. Current cladistic relationships among
Fabriciola species are discussed.
