A classification of the phylum Sipuncula is adopted following the analysis of Cutler & Gibbs (1985) and comprises two classes, four orders and six families. [] Key Result Seventeen genera are redefined, one new subgenus is described and twelve other subgenera are recognised.

Figures and Tables from this paper

Sipunculan phylogeny based on six genes, with a new classification and the descriptions of two new families
TLDR
Sipunculan phylogeny based on six genes, with a new classification and the descriptions of two new families, is presented.
Sipuncúlidos (phylum Sipuncula) del Mar del Sur de China
SUMMARY The geographical distribution of sipunculans from a part of the South China Sea is reviewed. The faunal data of a recent study of the authors from the Hainan Island have also been included
Fauna of Sipunculans (Sipuncula) of Vostok Bay, Sea of Japan
TLDR
Fauna and systematics of sipunculans inhabiting Vostok Bay, Sea of Japan, are discussed and some species are reduced to synonyms on the basis of study of outer and inner morphology.
A new subspecies of Phascolion Théel, 1875 (Sipuncula: Golfingiidae) from Indian waters.
TLDR
A new subspecies of Phascolion pacificum Murina, 1957 is described from shallow waters (15-20 m deep) off Malvan and Ratnagiri in India, which represents the first record of any PhASColion species for all the Indian coasts.
Reconstructing the phylogeny of the Sipuncula
TLDR
Sipunculans are marine spiralian worms with possible close affinities to the Mollusca or Annelida, and the monophyly of the two major groups, Phascolosomatidea and Sip unculidea is not confirmed.
Sipuncula from Réunion Island (Indian Ocean)
TLDR
Seventeen species in nine genera are recognized; four of them, Nephasoma constrictum, Phascolion caupo, Apionsoma capitatum and Aspidosiphon mexicanus, have not been recorded hitherto from the Indian Ocean.
Two New Species of Nephasoma (Sipuncula: Golfingiidae) from the Western Atlantic Ocean
TLDR
Two new species of the genus Nephasoma, phylum Sipuncula, are described from subtropical waters of the western Atlantic and Brazilian waters in sand habitats at 150 m on the continental shelf off the coast of the state of São Paulo.
New records of Phascolosoma turnerae (Sipuncula: Phascolosomatidae) from the Balearic Basin, Mediterranean Sea
Specimens of the deep-water sipunculan worm Phascolosoma (Phascolosoma) turnerae were recently collected from the western part of the Mediterranean Sea. This species is characterized by hooks showing
A new species of Phascolosoma (Sipuncula) associated with a decaying whale's skull trawled at 880 m depth in the South-west Pacific
TLDR
The presence of oil droplets within the gut suggests these sipunculans were saprophagic, the first evidence of such a habit within the phylum.
Sipuncula from the Alboran Sea and Ibero-Moroccan Bay
Sipunculans collected during the operations of ‘Balgim’ Survey of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (PIROCEAN), are recorded and data concerning them noted. The specimens come from the

A Phylogenetic Analysis of Higher Taxa in the Phylum Sipuncula
TLDR
This present work is an attempt to apply some of the extant phylogenetic methodology and logic to a phylum of poorlyknown, soft-bodied marine invertebrates for which there is no fossil record, an inadequate outgroup comparison on which to root character polarities, and only a modest number of useful characters.

A Review of the Sipunculan Genus Thysanocardia Fisher
TLDR
The taxonomy of the sipunculan taxon Thysanocardia Fisher is reviewed and three species are considered sufficiently distinct as to warrant specific status, namely T. catherinae, T. procera and T. nigra.
