Revision of Sternaspis Otto, 1821 (Polychaeta, Sternaspidae)
A revision of Sternaspis Otto, 1821 (Polychaeta: Sternaspidae) is presented based upon type materials, or material collected from type localities, and two genera are newly proposed to incorporate the remaining species: Caulleryaspis and Petersenaspis.
Sabellids (Polychaeta: Sabellidae) from the Grand Caribbean
This work summarizes the current knowledge of the diversity of this polychaete family in the Grand Caribbean, providing baseline data for future research and presenting a complete overview of all records for sabellids in the area.
Polychaete species (Annelida) described from the Philippine and China Seas.
This is a comprehensive list of the original names of all polychaete species described from the South China and Philippine Seas, which contains 1037 species, 345 genera and 60 families.
Six new deep-water sternaspid species (Annelida, Sternaspidae) from the Pacific Ocean
The study of some deep sea sternaspids from the Pacific Ocean in the collections of six research institutions resulted in the discovery of six undescribed species, and for three of them there were abundant materials showing ventro-caudal shield development.
Revision of Hermodice Kinberg, 1857 (Polychaeta: Amphinomidae)
The type species, H. carunculata, has been redescribed, and H. formosa (Quatrefages, 1866) has been transferred to Pherecardia, and two new features have been included: the number of branchial filaments and the anal lobe.
Revision of Semiodera Chamberlin, 1919 (Polychaeta: Flabelligeridae)
Some flabelligerid bodies are modified into a thick thorax and a long, thinner abdomen, or cauda; the thorax usually hassome sediment particles cemented forming a dorsal shield, and these
Three new polar species of Sternaspis Otto, 1821 (Polychaeta: Sternaspidae).
Two sternaspid species, Sternaspis fossor Stimpson, 1853 and S. scutata (Ranzani, 1817), have been recorded from many localities including polar or subpolar environments. The study of the collections
Lepidasthenia loboi sp. n. from Puerto Madryn, Argentina (Polychaeta, Polynoidae)
Among polychaetes, polynoids have the highest number of symbiotic species found living with a wide variety of marine invertebrates, including other polychaeta, and a key to Lepidasthenia species with giant neurochaetae are also included.
A New Genus and 12 New Species of Eunicidae (Polychaeta) from the Caribbean Sea
A new genus is established in Eunicidae: Fauchaldius gen. nov., a symbiont of hexactinellid sponges that has only subacicular hooks, with F. cyrtauloni sp. nov. as its type species. Nine new species
Phylogenetic affinities of the Flabelligeridae (Annelida, Polychaeta)
The results indicate that Acrocirridae, Ctenodrilidae, Fauveliopsidae, Flabelligeridae and Flotidae are monophyletic and that Sternaspidae falls within Cirratulidae; however, the latter conclusion might be reversed through increased taxon-sampling.
