Abstract
    Fourteen species of polychaetes from the families Glyceridae, Goniadidae and Nereidae were found in the BIOFAR material from the area around the Faroes at 20-2420 m depth. One species new to science, Rullierinereis faroensis, was obtained by the R/V Dana, south of the Faroes at 100 m depth. Six of the other species are new to the Faroes. The existence of two different water masses, Arctic water coming from north and east and Atlantic water coming from south, partly explain the distribution of the species.
