Large collections of Syllidae (Polychaeta) from around Australia, housed at the Australian Museum (Sydney), have been examined and identified. Australian material from the Hamburgische Zoologische Museum der Universitat, Hamburg, Germany was also examined, as well as some specimens lodged in other museums. All known Australian species of the subfamily Syllinae (Syllidae) belonging to the genera Branchiosyllis Ehlers, 1887 (9 species); Eurysyllis Ehlers, 1864 (1 species); Karroonsyllis San… Expand

Two new species of Branchiosyllis (Polychaeta: Syllidae) from Western Mexico
Branchiosyllis riojai has been reported for the Mexican Pacific as B. exilis (Gravier 1900), but it differs from the nominal species in falciger distribution along the body, shape of antennae, tentacular cirri and dorsal cirri, as well as in the number and shape of aciculae. Expand

The genus Branchiosyllis Ehlers, 1887 (Annelida, Syllidae, Syllinae) from off the American coasts, with the description of a new species from Venezuela
A new species from Venezuelan coast is described, differing from all other species of the genus by having a laterally compressed body, striking colour pattern, and the presence of well-developed branchiae. Expand
Phylogeny of Syllidae (Polychaeta) based on morphological data
The authors' results indicated high levels of homoplasy in the morphological characteristics that traditionally used to differentiate groups, such as the fusion of palps and the presence of nuchal epaulettes in the Syllidae. Expand
Systematics and evolution of syllids (Annelida, Syllidae)
The classification of the whole family is revised and discussed on the basis of this phylogenetic hypothesis, and the nature of the stolon is phylogenetically informative within Syllinae. Expand
