Abstract
Eight species of freshwater polychaetes are reported in the form of a key. Three families are represented: Nereidae with six species; Sabellidae with one species; Serpulidae with one species. The key includes only those polychaetes actually collected from freshwater and not those reported to withstand low salinities under experimental laboratory situations. Collection and preservation methods are discussed as well as characters used in specific identification.
