Polychaete New records Taxonomy South part of Suez Canal
Faunistic analysis of benthic samples were obtained during a trip to the south part of Suez Canal, Egypt, during April, 2007, which revealed the presence of 82 polychaete species, 18 of them are considered as new records for the Egyptian waters. In order to achieve this study fouling components and sediments samples were collected by Van Veen grab (0.5 to 8 m depths), from six stations extending from Deversoir to Port Toufiq. Illustrative taxonomical characters is provided for each newly recorded species; as well as geographic distribution are given to draw a picture of the new records, which indicated that most of them are lessepsian migrant and 6 species are of Mediterranean and Adriatic Sea affinity. Also the polychaete recorded formed less dense of population on shallow water, hard substrates and also in sediment.
