Collections from Beaufort (North Carolina), Seahorse Key and Tampa Bay (Florida), and Sapelo Island (Georgia), confirmed the presence of Phoronis architecta Andrews at Seahorse Key and Tampa Bay, and of P. muelleri Selys-Longchamps at Beaufort. An oyster shell containing a colony of the small, burrowing P. ovalis Wright was collected at Sapelo Island. This is the first record of this species on the east coast of the United States. A fourth species was also found at Sapelo Island. This species is quite similar to P. australis Haswell, 1883, which has not been reported from the western Atlantic; however, further study may reveal that it is a new species.
