Abstract

A new species of Maldanidae (Annelida: Polychaeta), Axiothella isocirra, is described from soft bottom samples taken at shallow depth at Blue Ground Range, Belize. The new species is characterized by a combination of few chaetae in the anterior setigers, the presence of four achaetous preanal segments and the equal length of the pygidial cirri. Variability of certain characters is shown, and its utility for taxonomy is discussed.
