I see that the Glasgow Haskell compiler has a parallel mode which can be used with PVM and there is interesting work with pH at MIT. Does anyone know of any other work on implicitly parallelizing functional programs for fine grain parallel execution?

This is perhaps not the kind of language you are looking for,
but SAC (Single Assignment C) is a functional array language,
which supports among others truly implicit parallelization.

See http://wwww.sac-home.org/ for more information.
