A review of the taxonomy and distribution of vestimentiferan tubeworms has been performed. The subfamily Vestimentifera comprises three infrafamilies: Lamellibrachiinae, Escarpiinae, and Tevniinae. The complete descriptions and illustrations of 19 vestimentiferan species known to date are given. Comparative tables of the morphological characteristics of all vestimentiferan genera have been compiled. Lamellibrachiinae appear to be the most eurybathic group, representatives of which inhabit… 
Southernmost records of Escarpia spicata and Lamellibrachia barhami (Annelida: Siboglinidae) confirmed with DNA obtained from dried tubes collected from undiscovered reducing environments in northern Chile
TLDR
Sound evidence is provided for the presence of reducing environments along the continental margin of northern Chile using vestimentiferans’ dried-up tubes and their degraded inner tissue.
Geochemistry drives the allometric growth of the hydrothermal vent tubeworm Riftia pachyptila (Annelida: Siboglinidae)
TLDR
Two morphotypes are described, ‘fat’ and ‘slim’, respectively, from the basalt sulphide-rich vents at 9 °N and 21 °N at the East Pacific Rise, and the highly sedimented, sulphides-poor vents at 27 °N in the Guaymas Basin, which are suggested to keep the sulphide uptake near to the optimum values for the symbionts.
Postembryonic Development of the Hydrothermal Vestimentiferan Oasisia alvinae Jones, 1985 (Annelida, Siboglinidae)
TLDR
It is suggested that the predominant growth of the trunk region during ontogeny is a common pattern for all vestimentiferans.
Annelid brain and nerve cord in siboglinid Riftia pachyptila
TLDR
Comparative neuroanatomical analysis of the siboglinids and annelid sister clades allows us to hypothesize that the last common ancestor of sibOGlinids might had brain with a dorsal commissure giving rise neurite bundles to palps and paired ventral nerve cord.
Characterization of Methane-Seep Communities in a Deep-Sea Area Designated for Oil and Natural Gas Exploitation Off Trinidad and Tobago
Exploration of the deep ocean (>200 m) is taking on added importance as human development encroaches. Despite increasing oil and natural gas exploration and exploitation, the deep ocean of Trinidad
Late Cretaceous hydrothermal vent communities from the Troodos ophiolite, Cyprus: systematics and evolutionary significance
TLDR
The Cyprus vent communities consist of worm tubes, representing possible vestimentiferans and serpulids, together with a moderate diversity of abyssochrysoid gastropods, belonging to eight new species, and the gastropod fauna contains the first representatives of the genera Desbruyeresia, Hokkaidoconcha, Ascheria and Paskentana from hydrothermal vents.

A remarkable pogonophoran from a desalted shallow near the mouth of the Yenisey River in the Kara Sea, with the description of a new species of the genus Galathealinum (Annelida: Pogonophora: Frenulata)
A new species of Pogonophora obtained from one station at a depth of 25 m from near the Dikson Island in the Kara Sea is described. Galathealinum karaense sp. nov. is one of the largest

Phylogeny of Vestimentifera (Siboglinidae, Annelida) inferred from morphology
TLDR
The biogeography is consistent with the recent divergence of Vestimentifera as inferred from molecular data and Hypothesized homologies of the vestimentiferan obturaculum and vestimentum to structures in related taxa need further investigation.
Molecular phylogeny of siboglinid annelids (a.k.a. pogonophorans): a review
TLDR
The literature to date on siboglinid molecular phylogeny is reviewed and a summary of the clade’s evolution is summarized.
Molecular phylogeny of siboglinid annelids (a.k.a. pogonophorans) : a review
TLDR
The literature to date on siboglinid molecular phylogeny is reviewed and a summary of the clade’s evolution is summarized.
Molecular systematics of vestimentiferan tubeworms from hydrothermal vents and cold-water seeps
TLDR
Examination of sequence divergence suggests that extant vestimentiferans constitute a recent evolutionary radiation that diversified as a paraphyletic assemblage of seep-associated taxa and then gave rise to a clade of vent-endemic taxa (genera Riftia, Oasisia, Ridgeia and Tevnia).
Revision of the species of Ridgeia from northeast Pacific hydrothermal vents, with a redescription of Ridgeia piscesae Jones (Pogonophora: Obturata = Vestimentifera)
TLDR
Morphological data indicate that the original distinction of two species on the basis of obturacular saucer number and tube colour was based on the extremes of a continuum of characteristics that relate to animal size, levels of predation, and probably vent fluid conditions.
Escarpia southwardae sp. nov., a new species of vestimentiferan tubeworm (Annelida, Siboglinidae) from West African cold seeps
TLDR
Morphologically, the African tubeworms are very similar to Escarpia laminata Jones, 1985 but differ from all other escarpids by the lack of branchial pinnules, a unique feature among vestimentiferans.
Vestimentiferans (Pogonophora) in the Pacific and Indian Oceans: a new genus from Lihir Island (Papua New Guinea) and the Java Trench, with the first report of Arcovestia ivanovi from the North Fiji Basin
Explorations by the German Research Vessel Sonne in the fore-arc and back-arc basins of the western Pacific Ocean have collected vestimentiferan tube worms from both warm vent and cold seep sites.
Lamellibrachia anaximandri n. sp., a new vestimentiferan tubeworm (Annelida) from the Mediterranean, with notes on frenulate tubeworms from the same habitat
TLDR
The new Lamellibrachia is the first vestimentiferan species to be described from the Mediterranean, and differs from L. luymesi taken from the Gulf of Mexico population in the very weak development of collars on its tube and in having a smaller number of pairs of branchial lamellae in the branchial plume.
