  author={A. Santelli and Elisa Punzo and P. Strafella and Clara Cuicchi and B Brunetti and Gianna Fabi},
Paradioatra bihanica (Intes and Le Loeuff, 1975) is a polychaete species belonging to the family Onuphidae. Members of this family occurs in all oceans from intertidal to the deepest depths (FAUCHALD & JUMARS, 1979; FAUCHALD, 1980; PAXTON, 1986; BUDAEVA & ROGACHEVA, 2013), inhabiting various biotopes and occasionally reaching very high densities (BAILEYBROCK, 1984). These species range in length from a few centimeters to 3 meters (PAXTON, 1986). Most of them are tubicolous and can live…

The genus Paradiopatra (Polychaeta, Onuphidae) in the Mediterranean with the description of Paradiopatra calliopae sp. nov.
Re-examination of a specimen from the Ionian Sea, reported as Onuphis lepta, shows that it possibly belongs to the new species of Paradiopatra Ehlers, and the characters distinguishing them are given.
Revision of Onuphis, Northria, and Paradiopatra (Polychaeta, Onuphidae) based upon type material
A revision of type material of species named in, or assigned to, Onuphis, Nothria, and Paradiopatra has lead to the recognition of three new genera in addition to the ones previously named for the group.
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.
Taxonomy and aspects of the life history of Australian beachworms (Polychaeta: Onuphidae)
Australian beachworms, recognized by specialists as one species Onuphis teres (Ehlers 1868), and by fishermen as a number of forms, were studied to determine whether more than one species was
Phylogeny of the Diopatra generic complex with a revision of Paradiopatra Ehlres, 1887 (Polychaeta: Onuphidae)
It is suggested that several parallel and independent events of paedomorphic evolution took place within the genera Diopatra and Paradiopatra, which led to the recognition of two artificial genera Epidiopatra and Notonuphis.

Benthic indicators to use in Ecological Quality classification of Mediterranean soft bottom marine ecosystems, including a new Biotic Index
A new biotic index (BENTIX) is proposed based on the relative percentages of three ecological groups of species grouped according to their sensitivity or tolerance to disturbance factors and weighted proportionately to obtain a formula rendering a five step numerical scale of ecological quality classification.
