The members of the Editorial Board are pleased to present Number 75 of the Phuket Marine Biological Center Research Bulletin which has a particular focus on biological diversity. Papers include one which highlights the identification of a new species of polychaete, Fimbriosthenelais andamanensis from the southern Andaman Sea together with papers that describe a new genus and species of Triassic nautiloid cephalopod from eastern peninsular Thailand and new records of ammonoid cephalopods from southern Thailand. In addition we publish a paper on the diversity of marine molluscs from the southern Mergui archipelago of Myanmar. This paper represents a preliminary survey of selected sites and records 279 species of molluscs, 58 of which have not been recorded previously in the Andaman Sea, the Gulf of Thailand or Singapore. Finally we include a paper of the effects of marking and tagging on the survival, growth and behaviour of the commercially important bigfin reef squid.

This volume also marks the retirement of Professor Barbara Brown from her role as Research Bulletin Editor. Her successor will be Associate Professor Tomas Cedhagen from Aarhus University, Denmark who has special interests in biodiversity, benthic fauna, marine conservation and ecology of tropical ecosystems.
