Abstract
    In the harbor and the near vicinity of Rovinj, North Adriatic, the sediment macrofauna was surveyed with the objective to establish the present conditions of the fauna and possible effects of untreated sewages to sublittoral benthic communities. A total of 167 animal species are listed, among which Polychaeta are dominant. A capitellid worm Neopseudocapitella brasiliensis new to European marine fauna is noted. It was found that benthic fauna in the area is still rather diverse. It seems that the spatial distribution of macrofauna is at present conditioned by substrate composition rather than it is influenced by effluents
