The present investigation was undertaken to understand the role of osmotic regulation in the distribution of four species of polychaetes, viz., Glycera embranchiata, Onuphis emnita, Loimia medusa and Clymene insecta in the brackish-water zones of Adyar, Madras. O. erimita .lIong with G. embranchiala are restricted to the shore and do not occur in the brackish-water zones: L. medusa occurs in the brackish-water zone but confined only to regions of higher salinity equal to the salinity of sea-water
