A series of cladistic analyses assesses the status and membership of the taxon Polychaeta. The available literature, and a review by Fauchald & Rouse (1997), on the 80 accepted families of the Polychaeta are used to develop characters and data matrices. As well as the polychaete families, non‐polychaete taxa, such as the Echiura, Euarthropoda, Onychophora, Pogonophora (as Frenulata and Vestimentifera), Clitellata, Aeolosomatidae and Potamodrilidae, are included in the analyses. All trees are… Expand

Systematization of the Annelida: different approaches
TLDR
The main message from phylogenetic analyses of molecular data is that there is no evidence for a monophyletic Polychaeta; instead, placement of the clitellates, pogonophorans and echiurans within the polychaete clade is supported, rendering thePolychaeta paraphyletic. Expand
Systematization of the Annelida: different approaches
Different approaches and different data sets are used to address questions about the phylogenetic relationships of the polychaete family taxa, the position of the Clitellata, the monophyletic natureExpand
RECENT VIEWS ON THE STATUS, DELINEATION AND CLASSIFICATION OF THE ANNELIDA
TLDR
A number of recent studies on annelid systematics and classification are reviewed and special emphasis is placed on the cladistic parsimony analyses of Rouse and Fauchald (1995, 1997) where a comprehensive assessment of the relationships among the various polychaete and Annelid groups was attempted. Expand
Problems in polychaete systematics
TLDR
Some of the intriguing issues in current polychaete systematics are reviewed and a preliminary cladistic analysis shows that it is entirely possible that seven other taxa recognised as families may be nested within Cirratulidae. Expand
4. 18s-rdna and Polychaetes
    The monophyly of polychaetes as well as the phylogeny of their traditional " families " is controversial. Most recent molecular phylogenetic analyses of polychaetes are based on 18S-rDNA data. ToExpand
    Phylogeny of Oweniidae (Polychaeta) based on morphological data and taxonomic revision of Australian fauna
    TLDR
    Phylogenetic hypotheses confirmed the monophyly of Oweniidae and suggested sister-group relationships with Magelonidae, although weakly supported and recognised Myrioglobula as a junior synonym of Myriochele based on the presence of acicular chaetae and the shape of the head. Expand
    Problems in polychaete systematics
    Some of the intriguing issues in current polychaete systematics are reviewed. (1) The root of the `polychaete' tree. Currently there are two major hypotheses concerning the root position amongExpand
    Polychaeta, Annelida, and Articulata are not monophyletic: articulating the Metameria (Metazoa, Coelomata)
    TLDR
    Annelida and Polychaeta are non-monophyletic, even when including Echiura, Clitellata, and Pogonophora, and Articulata; and Owenia plus Enterocoela form a monophyletics group related to the tubicolous polychaetes. Expand
    Soil-dwelling polychaetes: enigmatic as ever? Some hints on their phylogenetic relationships as suggested by a maximum parsimony analysis of 18S rRNA gene sequences
    TLDR
    Parergodrilus heideri and Stygocapitella subterranea Knollner, 1934 are interpreted as resulting from an ancient emergence and a rapid radiation of Polychaeta, and these polytomies are corroborated by independent evidence. Expand
    A phylogenetic and biogeographic study of Euniphysa (Eunicidae, Polychaeta)
    TLDR
    Seven species of Euniphysa are re-described based on type material and two new species, E. quadridentata and E. filibranchia, are described, suggesting a Tethyan origin associated with the westward drift of the North American continent. Expand

    A review of the classification of the Class Polychaeta (Annelida) with comments on the characters used to identify the different included taxa has led to the recognition of seventeen orders. All taxaExpand
    The articulation of annelids
    TLDR
    The Annelida should not be used unless relationships within the Articulata are resolved to show it is a monophyletic taxon, and the Pogonophora should revert to the original family name Lamellisabellidae Uschakov, 1933. Expand
    Point of View The rearticulation of annelids
    TLDR
    The profound influence the choice of input taxa has on the results of a cladistic analysis is discussed, an alternative interpretation of R and F’s data is provided, and issue is taken with their conclusion regarding the monophyly of Annelida. Expand
    Phylogenetic analysis of the Amphitritinae (Polychaeta: Terebellidae)
    TLDR
    With a robust phylogenetic hypothesis of amphitritine relationships, a re-classification of the group based on apomorphic character states can be undertaken, and questions regarding the evolution of morphological characters, reproductive modes, or biogeographical patterns can be properly addressed. Expand
    The direction of evolution within the Polychaeta
    TLDR
    From a decision in favour of Hypothesis 2 it would follow that the Clitellata should be considered the most primitive annelid. Expand
    Revision of the aphroditoid polychaetes of the family Acoetidae Kinberg (=Polyodontidae Augener) and reestablishment of Acoetes Audouin and Milne-Edwards, 1832, and Euarche Ehlers, 1887
    TLDR
    The family Acoetidae is reviewed and revised, based on reexamination of type material and published records, as well as on examination of new material. Expand
    A new genus and species of Dorvilleidae (Annelida, Polychaeta) from Bermuda, with a phylogenetic analysis of Dorvilleidae, Iphitimidae and Dinophilidae
    TLDR
    A phylogenetic analysis of all apparently valid genera in the three families leads to the hypothesis that Dinophilidae and Iphitimidae represent monophyletic and paraphyletic subgroups respectively, within Dorvilleidae. Expand
    Phylogeny and classification of the Phyllodocidae (Polychaeta)
    TLDR
    The phylogenetic relationships of the benthic phyllodocid genera are estimated by a parsimony analysis and it is concluded that the cephalization within Eteone has led to a reduction of segment 1 and loss of the first pair of tentacular cirri. Expand

    TLDR
    A family revision and cladistic analysis of the superfamily Nereidoidea sensu George and Hartmann - Schroder, 1985 and three synapomorphies are proposed are proposed: anterior or, rarely, anteroventral palps; paired pharyngeal retractor muscles; and the presence of metanephromixia are proposed.

    Generic revision and relationships of the family Onuphidae (Annelida: Polychaeta)

    It is hypothesized that the Onuphidae have a southern centre of origin and radiated from epifaunal habitats to world-wide distributions from the shallowest to the deepest depths. Expand
