Remarks. Originally described from Zanzibar (West Indian Ocean), Eunice tubifex   has been widely reported from Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales ( Day & Hutchings 1979). However, all material examined turned out to belong to the similar species E. impexa   (e.g., AM W.197058, W.9071, W.197059, W.201407, W.3528, W.5945, W.197057, W.197060, W.197831). Some records may also be of E. cultrifera   n. sp. All three species have cultriform (spinigerous) compound chaetae anteriorly replaced by bidentate compound chaetae in median and posterior chaetigers. Eunice tubifex   has single subacicular hooks in most chaetigers; E. impexa   has two or three subacicular hooks in a vertical row in very nearly all chaetigers. We therefore suggest that this species does not occur in Australian waters.
