|Abstract:||Two species of the polychaete family Nerillidae are reported
from sand collected from the south shore of O'ahu, Hawai'i. Nerilla antennata
O. Schmidt was collected from a shallow fringing reef, and Mesonerilla fagei
Swedmark with coarse sand from Honolulu Harbor. Both are less than 0.5 mm
in length and occupy an interstitial habitat. Nerilla antennata has a broad geographic
distribution including Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans, and M.
fagei is known from the North Atlantic. The morphology of Hawaiian specimens
is described and reproductive stages of M. fagei are illustrated.
