Epigamia noroi
Taxonomic Group: Annelids-Polychaetes


Epigamia noroi is a Syllid polychaete in the subfamily Autolytinae. It is native to the Northwest Pacific and introduced populations are established in southern California. It is found among rocks and seaweeds in the intertidal down to 40 m depth. Like other Syllids, it reproduces by epitoky. During epitoky its body breaks into segments, some of which become modified for carrying gametes and swimming. No impacts have been reported from introduced populations.
