Abstract

THE Mbalolo, Eunice viridia, is a marine annelid found in several places in islands of the Western Pacific. In Fiji I know of two and have heard of a third place in which the periodic ‘rising’ takes place. One such spot is between the shore and the fringing reef at the village of Tokou, in the island of Ovalau.
