Aricidea (Allia) bryani, a New Species of Polychaete (Polychaeta: Paraonidae) from the Northern Gulf of Mexico
Aricidea bryani, a new species of polychaete (Polychaeta: Paraonidae) belonging to the subgenus Allia Strelzov 1973, is described from shallow subtidal sediments along the northern shore of Mississippi Sound, an estuary of the northern Gulf of Mexico. The new species is distinguished from other members of the subgenus by the presence of tuberculate neuropodial lobes in the anterior 15-20 setigers, a cirriform median antenna that extends posteriorly to setiger three, and by modified neuropodial setae that are abruptly tapered at mid-length, but lack terminal aristae.
