About this Book
Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Antarctic Research Series, Volume 7.
The species of Myzostomidae consist of small (a few mm long) aberrant polychaetes usually found as parasites on or in crinoid or ophiuroid echinoderms. They may occur far more abundantly than the published records indicate, since they are easily overlooked and may fall from the hosts when disturbed.
