A new species of scale-worm, Lepidonotopodium okinawae sp. nov. from the Okinawa Trough is described. The new species differs from the other species of Lepidonotopodium by having 24 segments and numerous foveolae on the surface of elytra with one globular micropapilla in every foveola. A new record of the mussel commensal Branchipolynoe pettiboneae Miura & Hashimoto, 1991 is reported and described from the northern South China Sea, where for the first time the scale-worm is noted as occurring…

Sexually Dimorphic Scale Worms (Annelida: Polynoidae) From Hydrothermal Vents in the Okinawa Trough: Two New Species and Two New Sex Morphs
Sequencing of the cytochrome oxidase I (COI) gene in these four species confirmed the sexual dimorphism in vent polynoids for the first time, and provided reliable barcoding sequences for identifying these polychaetes.
New genera and species from the Equatorial Pacific provide phylogenetic insights into deep-sea Polynoidae (Annelida)
This study describes new species of deep-sea polynoids using morphology and molecular data and evaluates the monophyly of Macellicephalinae, highlighting the high diversity hidden in the deep.
Taxonomy at order and family levels of the benthic groups of Polychaeta in the coastal waters of China
This work collated keys to the orders and families of benthic groups of Polychaeta from the coastal waters of China into six orders, Scolecida, Spionida, Terebellida, Sabellida, Phyllodocida and Eunicida, and reviewed domestic studies of coastal polychaetes.
Phylogeny and Biogeography of Branchipolynoe (Polynoidae, Phyllodocida, Aciculata, Annelida), with Descriptions of Five New Species from Methane Seeps and Hydrothermal Vents
Five new species of Branchipolynoe are revealed from Pacific Costa Rican methane seeps and West Pacific hydrothermal vents, and the phylogenetic and biogeographical implications of this diversity are discussed.
Two New Phenol Derivatives from the Cold Seep‐Derived Fungus Aspergillus insuetus SD‐512
Two new phenol derivatives, namely insphenol A (1) and acetylpeniciphenol (2), along with seven known analogs (3–9), were isolated from the deep‐sea cold seep‐derived fungus, Aspergillus insuetus SD‐512, and represents the first example of isopentenyl phenol derivative with a unique 1‐glycosylation from the species.
Origines et évolution de lignées hydrothermales
Une limitation similaire avait empeche de replacer les familles de crevettes Alvinocarididae et de crabes Bythograeidae dans leur infra-ordre respectifs (Caridea et Brachyura) mais les marqueurs identifies pourront a posteriori etre recherches dans un echantillonnage large par capture a l?aide de sonde.


A new species of scale-worm (Polychaeta : Polynoidae), Lepidonotopodium atalantae sp nov., from the East Pacific Rise at 13 degrees N and 9 degrees 50'N

A new species of scale-worm (Polychaeta: Polynoidae), Lepidonotopodium jouinae sp. nov., from the Azores Triple Junction on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge
A new species of scale-worm, Lepidonotopodium jouinae, belonging to the sub-family Lepidonotopodinae (Polychaeta: Polynoidae) has been found in samples collected on deep-sea hydrothermal vent fields
New Species of Scale-Worms (Polychaeta:Polynoidae) from the Hydrothermal Rift-Area of the Mariana Back-Arc Basin in the Western Central Pacific

Some polynoid polychaetes found living commensally in mantle cavities of deep-sea mussels at the seep-sites near the Florida Escarpment, are described as a new species of Branchipolynoe, B. seepensis, commensal with deep- sea mussels in the Gulf of Mexico.
