Chauvinelia contains two abyssal species, C. biscayensis, and C. arctica. Because of the lack of some relevant details in the original descriptions, they are redescribed, the generic diagnosis is emended, and a key to separate them is included. Flabelliseta incrusta and Helmetophorus rankini, the type and only species for these genera are redescribed; they lack annulated or multi-articulated capillaries, their chaetae have a detachable cortex carrying successive rows of tiny spines, and they… 
Phylogenetic affinities of the Flabelligeridae (Annelida, Polychaeta)
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.
A new species of Acrocirrus (Polychaeta: Acrocirridae) from Coconut Island, Oahu, Hawaii
A new species of Acrocirrus is described from shallow waters of Coconut Island in Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, Hawaii, which is most similar to A. frontifilis but differs most notably by the absence of the notopodial cirri on the posterior chaetigers.

Flabelligena gascognensis sp. nov. (Polychaeta: Acrocirridae), a new species from the Capbreton Canyon (Bay of Biscay, NE Atlantic)
Flabelligena gascognensis (Annelida: Polychaeta), a new species of the family Acrocirridae Banse, 1969 is described from the northeastern Atlantic and a light emendation of the diagnosis of the genus is proposed with the aim of including the new species and two other species into the genus Flab intelligena.
Polychaeta from southeastern Australia. 1. Acrocirridae Banse, 1969, from Victoria and New South Wales

Redescription Of Helmetophorus rankini Hartman, 1978 (Polychaeta, Helmetophoridae) And Its Transfer To The Flabelligeridae
The only representative of the Helmetophoridae, Helmetophorus rankini Hartman, 1978, is redescribed and transferred to the Flabelligeridae, which has a papillated body surface, a buccal region with branchiae and grooved palps that is covered (partially) by a cephalic hood, weakly developed parapodia, and cross-barred capillaries.
