Abstract
    Descriptions of the hesionid polychaete, Hesiospina similis (Hessle) only relate to Japanese waters. However, benthic work in Galway Bay on the west coast of Ireland, has shown that H. similis occurs in the area and is common at one particular locality. Certain descriptions of another hesionid genus, Kefersteinia Quatrefages, in the European literature note features which are diagnostic for Hesiospina. Re-examination of some material ascribed to Kefersteinia has shown it to be consistent with Hesiospina. It is suggested that H. similis may be widespread in European waters. A description of Hesiospina from the west coast of Ireland is included with notes on its ecology.
