SYSTEMATIC ACCOUNT 177 The anterior border of the antennae has a prominent central indentation and there is a pair of eyes on the prostomium. The first pair of chaetigers is never present; the second pair reach to about three-quarters the length of the body. Hyaline glands may appear on the first parapodia in the dorsal part of the neuropodial pinnule (Text-fig. 8), but are always present from the third foot up to the end of the body; they are frequently pigmented but may be difficult to see. The chromophil glands appear first on the neuropodia of the third pair of parapodia and subsequently on all feet; they are not com- pact but consist of a series of ramifying tubules which are situated between the ventral and apical surfaces (Text-fig. 8). A tail is never present.

Text-fig. 8. Tomopteris septentrionalis: parapodia of specimens from (a) St. 250, (b) St. 2017. Discussion. The diffuse chromophil gland in T. septentrionalis might cause it to be confused with both T. planktonis and T. elegans. T. planktonis however has a compact chromophil gland in the adult and it is only in young specimens that any similarity between the two exists; as noted above (p. 174) Monro's (1936) specimen of T. septentrionalis from St. 41 A, is T. planktonis. The presence of the first pair of chaetigers in T. elegans serves to separate it from T. septentrionalis. General distribution. Cosmopolitan at all explored depths (see pp. 228-231).
