Phylogenetic relationships among and within the more than 70 recognized families of Annelida are poorly understood. [] Key Method Herein we use maximum likelihood phylogenetic reconstruction methods to examine the nuclear 18S rDNA (SSU) gene and the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene. Our results strongly support the hypothesis that P. meseres is a highly derived flabelligerid annelid closely related to Therochaeta. Thus, Poeobiidae is a junior synonym for Flabelligeridae. This result raises interesting…
A new southern record of the holopelagic annelid Poeobius meseres Heath, 1930 (Flabelligeridae)
TLDR
It is suggested that the earlier sole record of E. terwielii may have been an occurrence of what is known now as P. meseres, establishing the first genetically-confirmed occurrence of this species in the Southern Hemisphere.
Multiple origins of pelagicism within Flabelligeridae (Annelida).
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.
A brief review of holopelagic annelids.
TLDR
This work provides molecular evidence showing that the well-known alciopids are derived from within Phyllodocidae and at least two lineages, Poeobius meseres/Flota flabelligera and probably Chaetopterus pugaporcinus, are derived through paedomorphic processes acting on larvae from lineages that have sedentary adult forms.
Is Hydroides brachyacantha (Serpulidae : Annelida) a widespread species?
TLDR
The genetic lineage in South Australia is described as Hydroides nikae, sp.
Phylogenetic affinities of the Flabelligeridae (Annelida, Polychaeta)
TLDR
The results indicate that Acrocirridae, Ctenodrilidae, Fauveliopsidae, Flabelligeridae and Flotidae are monophyletic and that Sternaspidae falls within Cirratulidae; however, the latter conclusion might be reversed through increased taxon-sampling.
Phylogeny of the Serpula-Crucigera-Hydroides clade (Serpulidae:Annelida) using molecular and morphological data: implications for operculum evolution
TLDR
The phylogeny supports the monophyly of Hydroides, but Serpula forms a paraphyletic basal grade and Crucigera is polyphyletic, indicating that their similar opercular features are not homologous.
Molecular phylogenetic assessment of Spirobranchus kraussii-complex (Annelida: Serpulidae) from the Japanese Archipelago
TLDR
Three lineages were recovered within Spirobranchus kraussii-complex in Japan, and one was clearly distinct from the other previously sequenced species and is thus considered to be another distinct species of this species complex.
Trilobodrilus itoi sp. nov., with a Re-Description of T. nipponicus (Annelida: Dinophilidae) and a Molecular Phylogeny of the Genus
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic trees based on concatenated sequences of the three genes showed that T. itoi and T. nipponicus form a clade, which was the sister group to aClade containing the two European congeners T. axi Westheide, 1967 and T .

Mitochondrial genomes of Clymenella torquata (Maldanidae) and Riftia pachyptila (Siboglinidae): evidence for conserved gene order in annelida.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of DNA sequence, amino acid sequence, and gene order all support the recent hypothesis that Sipuncula and Annelida are closely related, suggesting that gene order is conserved across annelids.
Mitochondrial genomes of Galathealinum, Helobdella, and Platynereis: sequence and gene arrangement comparisons indicate that Pogonophora is not a phylum and Annelida and Arthropoda are not sister taxa.
TLDR
Comparisons of relative gene arrangements and of the nucleotide and inferred amino acid sequences among these and other published taxa provide strong support for an annelid-mollusk clade that excludes arthropods, and for the inclusion of pogonophorans within Annelida, rather than giving them separate phylum status.
The phylogenetic position of the Aeolosomatidae and Parergodrilidae, two enigmatic oligochaete‐like taxa of the ‘Polychaeta’, based on molecular data from 18S rDNA sequences
TLDR
Con convergent evolution of clitellate-like characters in S. subterranea and hence in the Parergodrilidae is suggested by the phylogenetic analysis.

Further phylogenetic studies of the Polychaeta using 18S rDNA sequence data
TLDR
Although the polychaete sister-group to the Clitellata is not clearly resolved, the clitellates are always recovered as a derived clade within the Polychaeta, and the recognition of some clades such as the Eunicida, Phyllodocida and Terebellida that have been proposed on morphological grounds are supported.
A connecting link between the Annelida and the Echiuroidea (Gephyrea armata)
TLDR
A new species, Poeobius meseres, is made the representative of a new family, the Poeobiidae, which, provisionally at least, is included in the Echiuroidea.
Population structure of two northern hemisphere polychaetes, Neanthes virens and Hediste diversicolor (Nereididae), with different life-history traits
TLDR
Results show that widely separated H. diversicolor populations are strongly differentiated at the cyt b locus, and that this species has experienced a drastic bottleneck and that a few remaining lineages recolonized its entire range.

TLDR
A series of cladistic analyses assesses the status and membership of the taxon Polychaeta and provides a new classification, which does not use Linnaean categories, and comprises two clades, the Scolecida and Palpata.
