An annotated list is given of the Norfolk marine and brackish-water archiannelids, oligochaetes, and hirudineans, based on more or less casual records; none of these species are unusual in any way in the present context, and the only one previously found on the Norfolk coast was the skate-leech Pontobdella muricata. Notes are also given on some polychaetes recorded by Redeke and van Bremen (1904), by Kirkegaard (1969), and by myself since my last paper on Norfolk polychaetes (Hamond, 1966). Microphthalmus aberrans is certainly, and Proceraea prismatica probably, new to the British Isles; Sthenelais limicola, Eteone lactea, Goniada maculata, Nerine bonnieri and Polycirrus medusa are all new to Norfolk, from the marine and brackish-water areas of which there are now known 147 species of polychaete. Thelepus Cincinnatus is recorded for the first time as a host for Harmothoe lunulata, and a new record is given for Pectinaria belgica. Finally, the distributions of various species are discussed in relation to their apparent preferences for certain substrata or types of water, and an attempt is made to suggest which the central North Sea species, as yet unknown from the Norfolk area, may in future be found there.
