ROCHA, Marcelo Borges  and  PAIVA, Paulo Cesar de. Scolelepis (Polychaeta: Spionidae) from the Brazilian coast with a diagnosis of the genus. Zoologia (Curitiba) [online]. 2012, vol.29, n.4, pp.385-393. ISSN 1984-4670.

Five species of Scolelepis have been reported for the Brazilian coast. This study raises this number, with two new records: S. acuta Treadwell, 1914, originally from Eastern Pacific, and Scolelepis andradei Delgado-Blas, Díaz & Liñero-Arana, 2009, from the Caribbean Sea. Furthermore, two species were found to have an expanded geographic range along the Brazilian coast: Scolelepis lighti Delgado-Blas, 2006 and Scolelepis goodbodyi Jones, 1962.

Keywords : Morphology; Scolelepis acuta; Scolelepis andradei; systematics; taxonomy.
