A GUIDE TO SOME TOMALES BAY POLYCHAETES,
PACIFIC MARINE STATION DILLON BEACH CALIF
Pagination or Media Count:
The polychaete collection of the Pacific Marine Station presently includes ninety one species from twenty nine families. Of this total ninety species have been confirmed by Dr. Olga Hartman. Most of the collection comes from intertidal and subtidal stations in the White Gulch area. Most of the remainder are intertidal species from the Lawsons Flat area, and a few species are from the sandy beach or rocky intertidal at Dillon Beach and from Tomales Point. This guide is intended to help in the clarification of a few of the more puzzling problems of identification with respect to the present PMS collection. It is by no means intended to be a key to Tomales Bay polychaetes, but used in conjunction with the Hartman literature, the two principal Berkeley and Berkeley papers 1948 and 1952, and the Johnson polychaete paper 1897, this Guide to Some Tomales Bay Polychaetes should be helpful in working with the present PMS collection.
