Eunice longicirris Grube, 1869  

Eunice longicirris Grube, 1869: 492   .— Fauchald 1992: 198.

Remarks. This species was reported from Western Australia by Augener (1922a), but has not been otherwise found in Australia. The identity of Augener’s specimens is open to some doubt, even if he did compare them directly to the type described from the Red Sea ( Augener 1922a: 34). Characteristics for the species are the very long, slender notopodial cirri which, in the type specimen clearly outreach the branchiae in all chaetigers and the nearly bamboolike articulation of these cirri. Augener had two specimens and described them separately. The specimen illustrated does not belong to E. longicirris   , since branchiae clearly outreach the notopodial cirri, which lack or have very indistinct articulations and are distinctly tapering, rather than nearly filiform. We therefore suggest that this species does not occur in Australian waters.
