The occurrence of the polychaete worm Nereiphylla paretti in Azorean waters is reported for the first time, increasing the total number of littoral marine polychaetes to 168 species in the archipelago. Our finding extends the known geographical distribution of this species in the northeast Atlantic Ocean. A list of the littoral marine polychaetes from the Azores is given based on a literature survey.
