Holopelagic Poeobius meseres (“Poeobiidae,” Annelida) Is Derived From Benthic Flabelligerid Worms
TLDR
This work uses maximum likelihood phylogenetic reconstruction methods to examine the nuclear 18S rDNA (SSU) gene and the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene and results strongly support the hypothesis that P. meseres is a highly derived flabelligerid annelid closely related to Therochaeta.
