Article
The new species Abarenicola wellsi n. sp. from the Falkland Islands is described along with a re-description of Abarenicola brevior n. stat. with which it had previously been confused. The two species are distinguished using both morphological and molecular techniques, new characters are described and previously recognized characters are clarified,...

A neotype of Amphitrite Müller (1771) is established and re-described, using material collected in 2001 from near the type locality on the southwest coast of Iceland. We examined material from Iceland, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, identified as Pseudopotamilla reniformis, showing scissiparity and commonly found in aggregations within kelp holdfast...

Kristian Fauchald was a well-known, prolific and highly influential researcher in the field of polychaete systematics. This publication has been produced as a tribute to Kristian's life for the occasion of the 12th International Polychaete Conference, held in Cardiff, Wales from 1-5 August 2016. It has been compiled from essays, reminiscences, anec...
Article
Three new species of Dysponetus (Polychaeta: Chrysopetalidae) are described from the South Atlantic and Southern Ocean: Dysponetus ovalisetosus n. sp. from the Falkland Islands, Dysponetus bricklei n. sp. from South Georgia and Dy-sponetus antarcticus n. sp. from Antarctica are all characterized by having notochaetae that are oval in cross-section...

The intertidal and nearshore Nereididae of the Falkland Islands are detailed and a new species of Gymnonereis described. The new species, Gymnonereis tenera sp. n., is the first record of the genus for the Falkland Islands. It is, so far, only known from a few intertidal locations in fine and muddy sands. Main distinguishing characters are: jaw tee...
Article
Micromaldane shackletoni n. sp. is described from the Falkland Islands in the southwest Atlantic. It is only the eighth species of Micromaldane to be recognized worldwide and is a new record of the genus for the Falkland Islands. The main characters of the new species are: up to 23 chaetigerous segments; nuchal organs as rounded ciliated pits with...

The southern Irish Sea is a shallow sea (with maximum depths of 160m) that lies between Wales and the Republic of Ireland in the NE Atlantic region, covering an area of ~33,000km2. The area includes many broadscale geomorphic features including plains, banks, ridges, reefs, valleys, shoals, bioherms, and sediment wave fields. Biological diversity h...
Chapter
The OBel Sands, an extensive area of sand waves up to 19 m high, cover over 1,000 km2 in the Outer Bristol Channel off the Welsh coast. The sand wave field can be divided into a northern half, the NOBel Sands, with a dense concentration of bedforms on a sand substrate, and a southern half, the SOBel Sands, with isolated sand waves on a coarse sedim...

Dysponetus is a genus of the family Chrysopetalidae with twelve currently described species. Specimens are fragile and easily damaged or broken during sampling making identification difficult. The most recently described species, Dysponetus joeli Olivier et al., 2012, from the Bay of Biscay and the English Channel, was described from a few small, d...

The OBel Sands, an area of sand waves up to 19m high, cover an extensive area, >1,000 km2, in the Outer Bristol Channel off the coast of Wales. The sand wave field can be divided into a northern half with a dense concentration of bedforms on a sand substrate, and southern half with isolated sand waves on a coarse substrate. In both areas, the sand...

Two new species of Diplocirrus Haase, 1915 are described from the southern Irish Sea and South Africa. Diplocirrus stopbowitzi sp. nov., identified from several surveys around the Irish Sea in recent years, favors coarser sediments than D. glaucus (Malmgren, 1867), the only other species of Diplocirrus identified from the area. It is morphologicall...
Article
The HABMAP project aimed to provide seabed habitat maps that could be used for conservation and management. The project was carried out in the southern area of the Irish Sea and northeastern part of the adjoining Celtic Sea. It was a partnership between several organisations in Wales and Ireland, partly funded by the INTERREG IIIa European Regional...

This report describes the results of a survey of four areas of potential Annex I reef in the Irish Sea, north and west of Anglesey. The survey aimed to improve understanding of the habitats and communities present within areas identified as potentially containing Annex I reef habitat according to the Habitats Directive, and to assess the suitabilit...

The Outer Bristol Channel Marine Habitat Study (OBCMHS) was a multifaceted project involving scientific inves- tigation, interpretation and education in an area with potential marine aggregate resources. The outputs include detailed research reports on the surveys coupled with a range of outreach measures concerned with sea bed sur- vey and the mar...

Soft sedimentary biotopes are extensive in the shallow Western Indian Ocean, especially on the Seychelles Plateau and Mascarene Ridge, yet pro rata compared with coral reefs the research effort devoted to them has been minimal. In this study we examine the benthic mollusc and polychaete worm assemblages of the shallow waters (11–62 m) around Mahé,...
Article
A habitat specific survey of the epifauna and fish fauna of sandbanks off the Welsh coastline was undertaken in 2001. Of these, three sandbanks were considered to represent extensions of shallow nearshore soft-sediment communities, while a further six sandbanks were considered to be distinct sandbanks; seabed features clearly defined in comparison...

Litocorsa seychellensis, new species, is described and L. dentata Imajima, 1987 newly recorded from the Seychelles (western Indian Ocean). The new species is morphologically closest to L. ewingi (Wolf, 1986) from Florida, U.S.A. Following a re-examination of the holotype and two non-type specimens from Japan, the description of L. dentata is emende...

The South-West Irish Sea Survey (SWISS) was initiated in 1996 as a collaborative venture between Irish and Welsh scientists under the European Union INTERREG II programme. Its primary aims are to evaluate the biodiversity of the south-western Irish Sea/Celtic Sea area, chart the benthic invertebrate assemblages, iden- tify areas of importance for f...
