The fossil impressions of tubes belonging to the bristle worms of the family Pectinariidae and probably the genus Pectinaria Savigny, 1818 was found at the coastal cliffs of the Tartar Strait (Southern Sakhalin) in deposits of the late Miocene Kurasi Formation. Rare mentions of findings of impressions of the polychaetes tubes perhaps may be explained by the fact that such impressions are misidentified as fossils of animals from other higher taxa. Some new data on the bionomics of the recent…

Fossil impression of a nephtyid polychaete (Polychaeta: Nephtyidae) in the Miocene sediments of Sakhalin (NW Pacific)
During the expedition of the Zoological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (ZIN RAS) in 1998, a fossil impression of a polychaete worm belonging to the family Nephtyidae Grube, 1850,
Devonian agglutinated polychaete tubes: all in all it's just another grain in the wall
This fossil is characterized by an agglutinated tube made of silt-sized particles forming an unusual flanged morphology that is not known from the fossil record, which suggests an early divergence of the Sedentaria clade may have occurred before the Devonian.
Fossil impression of a nephtyid polychaete ( Polychaeta : Nephtyidae ) in the Miocene sediments of Sakhalin ( NW Pacific )
Based on the analysis of the jaw shape, it is concluded that the nephtyid impression may belong to the genus Nephtys Cuvier 1817 or the genus Aglaophamus Kinberg, 1865.


A new species of Pectinaria (Annelida, Pectinariidae), with a key to pectinariids from the South China Sea
A new species of polychaetes building unique ice-cream cone shaped sandy tubes is described from the coastal waters of the northern South China Sea and can be distinguished from all other 25 recognized species in the genus by a combination of characters.
