The two new species of Spiophanes
described herein were obtained from two sources:
1. One species was collected by Roland L. Wigley and others off Massachusetts and found in the collections of polychaetes at the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Station at Woods Hole, Massachusetts, where I worked during the summer of 1960.
2. One species was collected by Edith and Cyril Berkeley in British Columbia, Canada, and confused with Spiophanes cirrata
This study was carried out at the United States National Museum and aided by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF G-4833).
