The common shallow water species of sea anemones (Actiniaria) and tube anemones (Ceriantharia) of the Azores are listed. Eight species of sea anemones are mentioned, the species Cereus pedunculatus and Sagartia affinis being new records for the archipelago. Both species of Ceriantharia, namely Arachnanthus nocturnus and Pachycerianthus solitarius, are recorded from the Azores for the first time. Arachnanthus nocturnus is also recorded from the Cape Verde Islands and from Madeira for the first time. 2000). We here present a fauna list for the Actiniaria and Ceriantharia of the Azores, with some zoogeographical remarks. There are no publications dealing mainly with the Actiniaria of the Azores, except Riemann-Zürneck (1978) on deep-sea species. No Ceriantharia have been recorded previously from the Azores.
