Annelida is an ecologically and morphologically diverse phylum within the Lophotrochozoa whose members occupy a wide range of environments and show diverse life styles. [...] Key Result Six taxa branch as a basal grade outside of this major radiation: Oweniidae, Magelonidae, Chaetopteridae, Sipuncula, Amphinomida, and Lobatocerebrum. Oweniidae and Magelonidae form a monophyletic group which we name Palaeoannelida, which constitutes the sister taxon of the remaining annelids. The early splits of annelid…Expand

Annelid Diversity: Historical Overview and Future Perspectives
Annelida is a ubiquitous, common and diverse group of organisms, found in terrestrial, fresh waters and marine environments. Despite the large efforts put into resolving the evolutionaryExpand
A Cambrian crown annelid reconciles phylogenomics and the fossil record
TLDR
Dannychaeta tucolus is a new fossil polychaete (bristle worm) from the early Cambrian Canglangpu formation that belongs to crown annelids, and has characters that provide evidence of ecological and morphological diversity in ancient annelid evolution, thus reconciling the fossil record with molecular phylogenetic analyses. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Maldanidae (Annelida): Multiple losses of tube-capping plates and evolutionary shifts in habitat depth.
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny using 52 maldanid species from six subfamilies based on two nuclear genes and 28S rDNA and two mitochondrial genes suggested that habitat shifts among depth zones frequently occurred in distinct maldinid lineages. Expand
Extensive gene rearrangements in the mitogenomes of congeneric annelid species and insights on the evolutionary history of the genus Ophryotrocha
Background Annelids are one the most speciose and ecologically diverse groups of metazoans. Although a significant effort has been recently invested in sequencing genomes of a wide array ofExpand
Molecular phylogeny of Paraonidae (Annelida).
TLDR
The results of the present work suggest that environmental features play a crucial role in the diversification of this family, whereas the influence of geographical distance appears less pronounced. Expand
Sclerite-bearing annelids from the lower Cambrian of South China
TLDR
Two new annelids from the Lower Cambrian Chengjiang Lagerstätte, South China are reported - Adelochaeta sinensis n. Expand
The role of progenesis in the diversification of the interstitial annelid lineage Psammodrilidae
TLDR
A combined phylogeny of Psammodrilidae is presented including molecular and morphological data of all eight described species as well as four undescribed species to reveal an unexpected diversity and distribution of this small family. Expand
Complete mitochondrial genome of the ragworm annelid Hediste diversicolor (of Müller, 1776) (Annelida: Nereididae)
TLDR
The first complete mitogenome of the Atlantic ragworm Hediste diversicolor is presented and the phylogenetic analysis using both maximum-likelihood and Bayesian inference methods reveal a well-supported monophyly of genus Hediste and the already reported paraphyletic relationships within the subfamilies Nereidinee and Gymnonereidinae. Expand
Phylogeny and systematics of Aphroditiformia
TLDR
Aphroditiformia represents one of the most successful radiations of annelids, and is therefore an interesting model to understand morphological and functional evolution and is addressed through the analysis of four molecular markers and 87 morphological characters sampled across 127 species under the assumptions of parsimony and model‐based methods. Expand
Phylogeny, evolution and mitochondrial gene order rearrangement in scale worms (Aphroditiformia, Annelida).
TLDR
This study provided more evidence for reconstruction of the phylogeny of Aphroditiformia, provided evidence to refute the assumption that mitochondrial gene order in Errantia is conserved, and indicated that the deep-sea extreme environment may have affected the mitochondrial genome evolution rate and gene order arrangement in Polynoidae.

Evolution of mitochondrial gene order in Annelida.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the supposedly highly conserved mitochondrial gene order suggested for Annelida is restricted to Pleistoannelida, representing the ground pattern of this group and the first mitochondrial genomes in AnnelIDA that encode genes on both strands are reported. Expand
Phylogenomic analyses unravel annelid evolution
TLDR
It is shown that phylogenomic analyses of 34 annelid taxa, using 47,953 amino acid positions, recovered a well-supported phylogeny with strong support for major splits and Ancestral character trait reconstructions indicate that these clades show adaptation to either an errant or a sedentary lifestyle. Expand
Phylogeny of Annelida (Lophotrochozoa): total-evidence analysis of morphology and six genes
TLDR
The combined ("total-evidence") phylogenetic analysis provides a modified view of annelid evolution, with several higher-level taxa, i.e. the monophyly of the Aciculata, sister-group relationships between the Eunicida and OPC, between the Cirratuliformia and SSC, and possibly also between the "Clitellatomorpha" and Oweniidae-Pogonophora clades. Expand
The origin of annelids
TLDR
A novel clade of machaeridians, the Cuniculepadida, is identified, which exhibit a series of adaptations for burrowing, and is identified as a convincing body of molecular evidence that polychaetes form a paraphyletic grade and that clitellates are derived polychaETes. Expand
Annelid phylogeny and the status of Sipuncula and Echiura
TLDR
Using multiple genes and explicit hypothesis testing, it is shown that Echiura, Siboglinidae, and Clitellata are derived annelid with polychaete sister taxa, and that Sipuncula should be included within annelids. Expand
New insights into polychaete phylogeny (Annelida) inferred from 18S rDNA sequences.
TLDR
The results support the assumption that on the basis of a broader taxon sampling the phylogenetic position of controversially discussed taxa can be inferred by using 18S rDNA sequence data. Expand
Systematics, evolution and phylogeny of Annelida – a morphological perspective
TLDR
Attempts to understand the major transitions in annelid evolution are reviewed and discussed in the light of new morphological evidence such as photoreceptor cell and eye evolution as well as the evolution of the nervous system and musculature. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of annelids, molluscs, and arthropods evidenced from molecules and morphology
TLDR
The result supports the Eutrochozoa hypothesis and the monophyly of molluscs, and indicates early acquisition of segmented body plans in arthropods. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the Annelida
TLDR
Both molecular and morphological analyses support placement of the Siboglinidae (formerly the Pogonophora) as a derived group within the Annelida; there is also evidence, based on molecular analysis of the nuclear gene elongation factor-1α, that the unsegmented echiurids are derived annelids. Expand
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
