Distribution of Nereilinum murmanicum (Annelida, Siboglinidae) in the Barents Sea in the Context of Its Oil and Gas Potential
Frenulate siboglinids are a characteristic component of communities living in various reducing environments, including sites with hydrocarbon seeps. High concentrations of hydrocarbons in the
A new genus of frenulates (Annelida: Siboglinidae) from shallow waters of the Yenisey River estuary, Kara Sea
A new genus and a new species of frenulates Crispabrachia yenisey are described and the tube structure with prominent frills and the worm’s numerous tentacles, metameric papillae with cuticular plaques and segmental furrow on the forepart indicate that the new genus belongs to the polybrachiid group.
The First Discovery of Pogonophora (Annelida, Siboglinidae) in the East Siberian Sea Coincides with the Areas of Methane Seeps.
The found specimens are presumably assigned to the genus Oligobrachia and the previously stated hypothesis about relationship of siboglinid tubeworm distribution with the areas of underwater methane seeps is confirmed.
Myogenesis of Siboglinum fiordicum sheds light on body regionalisation in beard worms (Siboglinidae, Annelida)
The heteronomous Siboglinum lacks the strict anterior to posterior sequence of segment formation as it is found in the most studied annelid species and may represent an adaptation of these annelids to the settlement and transition to the sedentarian-tubiculous mode of life.

Collections of bottom-living animals from the continental slope of the northern Bay of Biscay contain a new species of Oligobrachia and these have been useful in revising the description of this rather rare species.
On some frenulate species (Annelida: Polychaeta: Siboglinidae) from mud volcanoes in the Gulf of Cadiz (NE Atlantic)
Collections of Frenulata made by the RV Professor Logachev in the Gulf of Cadiz in 2006 contain two new species, one belonging to the genus Spirobrachia , and another that was assigned to a new
First Discovery of Pogonophora (Annelida, Siboglinidae) in the Kara Sea Coincide with the Area of High Methane Concentration
The first finding of a frenulate pogonophoran (Annelida, Siboglinidae) in the southern part of the Kara Sea is reported, in the region of the highest methane concentrations, resulting from the degradation of permafrost under the influence of river flow.

Four new species of the genus Polarsternium (Smirnov, 1999) are recorded from the Atlantic Sector of the Antarctic Ocean. Benthic samples were collected from depths of 820–6070 m at 10 stations on
New Pogonophora from the northeast Pacific Ocean
Five species of Pogonophora have been found in collections of benthos from depths of 200 to 2680 meters off the coast of British Columbia, Canada. They include two species already known from the
Two new species of Pogonophora from the arctic mud volcano off northwestern Norway
Abstract Collections of Pogonophora made by the research vessels Håkon Mosby and Professor Logachev in the Norwegian Sea in 1995–1996 contain two new species belonging to the genera Sclerolinum and
New observations on the biology of Siboglinum poseidoni Flügel & Langhof (Pogonophora) from the Skagerrak
It is concluded that released larvae develop in the sediment in the oxygenated top layer at methane seep sites, and three tube types have been found: 1, the larval envelope; 2, the juvenile, transparent tube and 3, the ringed, adult tube.
Taxonomy, geographical and bathymetric distribution of vestimentiferan tubeworms (Annelida, Siboglinidae)
The hypothesis on the Pacific origin on vestimentiferan tubeworms has been discussed, and the eurybathic Lamellibrachiinae and Escarpiinae penetrated into the Atlantic Ocean through shallow-water basins of the Tethys Ocean and channels in the place of Mesoamerica, while the deep-sea Tevniinae were not able to do that.
