The earth-worm, the lobworm, the nereis, and the leech belong to this division.
There is another species, resembling nereis procera which I have not yet identified.
Large numbers of marine worms of the genus nereis, which prey upon oysters, are eaten by shorebirds.
nereis, the Rainbow Worm (p. 159) may be named as an example.
Grube thinks that the nereis of Delle Chiaie is no other than the Polyno malleata.
