Abstract

Two trumpet worms (Pectinariidae), which do not resemble the two known species: Lagis koreni Malmgren, 1866 and Amphictene auricoma (Müller, 1776), have recently been collected in the Dutch North Sea (Oyster Grounds). Their characteristics match those of Pectinaria belgica (Pallas, 1766), a species with a northern distribution. This paper summarizes the current state of knowledge of Dutch Pectinariidae and describes in detail the historical records of trumpet worms recorded in the Netherlands, along with the confusion around the species epithet belgica. Pectinaria belgica is reported here for the first time from the Dutch North Sea.

Acknowledgements

Many thanks are due to Geoff Read (New Zealand), Pat Hutchings (Australia), João Gil (Portugal), Christer Erséus (Sweden) and Rüdiger Schmelz (Spain) who discussed this issue with me several times. Tim Worsfold (UK) provided me with specimens of Cistenides granulata (from the Barents Sea) and P. belgica (from Scotland) so that I could finally confirm my Dutch material. Loran Kleine Schaars (NIOZ, Texel) sent me other P. belgica material from the Oyster Grounds. Hans Hillewaert (Belgium) kindly provided the excellent photo of L. koreni, Igor Jirkov (Russia) gave me the information on the distribution of the Northern species and Julio Parapar (Spain) provided me with some papers. Nadezhda Slepkova (Zoological Institute, Saint Petersburg) gave me some information on Pallas and confirmed that there was no sample of Polychaeta described by Pallas in their collection. Lena Gustavsson (Sweden) provided me with the correct type numbers of L. koreni and P. belgica present in SMNH. Finally, I would like to thank all my colleagues at Eurofins, especially Rianna Vlierboom, Lilian de Vos, Anke Engelberts, Angela Dekker, Rien Stolk and Edwin Verduin for support and discussion on this large “Goudkammetje”. Rianna also read an earlier version and corrected the English language, and Edwin and Rien made the distribution maps, for which I am very grateful.
