Abstract
    The presence of the Japanese spionid polychaete Prionospio pulchra in the Atlantic Ocean is confirmed by specimens found in the north-west coast of Spain (Iberian Peninsula). This species is characterized by its eight to ten pairs of long and apinnate branchiae, the longest extending over six to eight segments, and by the presence of five prostomial marginal peaks. Notes on variability of some anatomical aspects and ecological preferences of this species in the Atlantic coast of Spain are also given to complement the original description.
