Nicidion cf. fuscafasciata Treadwell, 1922  

Nicidion fuscafasciata Treadwell, 1922:156   .

Eunice   fuscafasciata— Fauchald 1992:152.

Material examined. Queensland: Lizard Island, 14°40’S, 145°28’E, coll. P. Hutchings, Jan 1975, AM W.197126 (l). New South Wales: Diggers Camp between Minnie Water & Wooli, 29°49’S, 153°17’E, seaward reef, between crevices in rock pools, coll. P. Hutchings & J. Holloway, 27 Feb 1971, AM GoogleMaps   W.197081 (2). Lord Howe Island : Salmon Beach, 31°28’S, 159°09’E, in coral and Corallina   at low tide on reef, coll. P. Hutchings, 25 Apr 1971, AM GoogleMaps   W.5526 (2); low tide, from Corallina   and Lithothamnion   masses, coll. P. Hutchings 24 Apr 1971, AM W.5534 (l).

Remarks. This species is abranchiate and has irregularly articulated antennae and palps with three or four articulations. Only two abranchiate species are known to have articulated antennae, N. fuscafasciata   and Eunice curticirris Knox, 1960   . In the latter the articulations are distinctly moniliform; in the former they are somewhat irregularly cylindrical ( Fauchald 1992). The observed specimens differ from N. fuscafasciata   redescription in shape of the compound falciger chaetae and subacicular hooks.

Type locality. Pago Pago , Samoa   .
