A nereid worm , Perineresi aibuhitensis has been frequently mis-identified in Korea as P.vancaurica tetradentata or Neanthes virens due to the wide variation in the number and arrangement of paragnaths on its proboscis. In this paper we re-examined ca. 50 worms collected in three intertidal mud flats of the western coast of Korea, and identified them to be P.aibuhitensis , a new record in Korea. We also described the hteronereid of this species and its biogeographical range.
