Víctor Manuel Conde-Vela, Xuwen Wu, and Sergio Ignacio Salazar-Vallejo (2018) Kainonereis Chamberlin, 1919 was proposed to include only one species, K. alata, based on epitokes provided with elytriform structures in chaetigers 5-7. The species was thoroughly described and illustrated, but its unique features were enigmatic and the genus is currently regarded as taxon inquirendum. In order to have a better understanding of its diagnostic features and determine how this genus differs from similar… Expand
Revision of Laeonereis Hartman, 1945 (Annelida: Phyllodocida: Gymnonereidinae), with a review of shaft morphology in nereidids
It is shown that Laeonereis species have a similar glandular pattern in the notopodial dorsal ligules, herein called pedal glands, reinforcing the differences among closely related species. Expand
Kristianides, A New Genus of Scale Worms from the Northern Gulf of Mexico and New Records of Phyllohartmania taylori (Annelida: Polychaeta: Polynoidae).
During a study of Polynoids from the Grand Caribbean to corroborate features and records, the holotype and additional material of P. taylori housed at the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution were examined and an unknown genus of Eulagiscinae Pettibone, 1997 confused with Phyllohartmania was found; the present study erects this as a new genus.

Revision of Sinonereis Wu & Sun, 1979 (Annelida: Nereididae)
It is shown that Nicon sinica is a junior synonym of S. sinica and S. heteropoda based on their affinities in chaetal and parapodial features, and redefine Sinonereis and formally synonymize N. sinicas. Expand
Reproductive morphology and redescriptions of some Neanthes Kinberg, 1865 (Annelida: Nereididae) species from the southeastern Asian seas, with comparative synoptic tables of accepted species
Neanthes Kinberg, 1865 is a speciose nereidid genus with some species exhibiting epitoky during the timing of reproduction. The epitokal morphology of males and females has long been agreed to be d...

Phylogeny of nereidids (Polychaeta, Nereididae) with paragnaths
The most parsimonious trees could not be rooted such that the selected ingroup, ‘Nereididae with paragnaths’, was monophyletic, causing the monophyly of the Nereidinae as currently defined to be rejected. Expand
Taxonomy of reproductive Nereididae (Annelida) in multispecies swarms at Ambon Island, Indonesia
Ten species of reproductive Nereididae are described, including a new combination, formerly Ceratonereis marmorata; epitokous modifications are described for both sexes of each species including taxonomically important features such as body colour and number of pre-natatory chaetigers. Expand
Intertidal and nearshore Nereididae (Annelida) of the Falkland Islands, southwestern Atlantic, including a new species of Gymnonereis
Abstract The intertidal and nearshore Nereididae of the Falkland Islands are detailed and a new species of Gymnonereis described. The new species, Gymnonereis tenera sp. n., is the first record ofExpand
Redescription and resurrection of Typhlonereis gracilis Hansen, 1879(Polychaeta, Nereididae)
A number of morphological characteristics indicate that this taxon should be considered valid, and Typhlonereis gracilis lack notochaetae in the first four chaetigers, a feature not found in any other nereidid taxon. Expand

Taxonomy of sympatric New Zealand species of Platynereis, with description of three new species additional to P. australis (Schmarda) (Annelida: Polychaeta: Nereididae)
Metamorphosed, sexually mature Platynereis adults captured swimming nearshore at night off the New Zealand coast had major morphological differences that indicated four similar sympatric speciesExpand
On the morphology of elytra as luminescent organs in scale-worms (Polychaeta, Polynoidae)
The study allowed us to suggest that the luminescent protein is located in the cells of the basal layer, while the tubercles may act as lenses helping in the light flash transfer towards the exterior. Expand
The aim of this research was to study the abnormality morphology of Namalycastis form Jakarta Bay and estuary Way Belau-Lampung (unpolluted sediment) and to find out whether these abnormalities might had resulted from the influence of polluted habitat conditions. Expand
On Reproductive Pattern as a Specific Characteristic among Nereid Polychaetes
The viviparous nereid Nereis limnicola Johnson (1903) is widespread in estuarine situations on the North American Pacific coast, as well as in the fresh-water Lake Merced in San Francisco, its type locality. Expand
