In a survey of the polychaetes of the Lizard Island region, six species of polychaetes belonging to the families Telothelepodidae Nogueira, Fitzhugh & Hutchings, 2013, Thelepodidae Hessle, 1917 and Trichobranchidae Malmgren, 1866 were found, from material collected during the Lizard Island Polychaete Taxonomic Workshop, and material collected by previous projects undertaken by the Australian Museum. This material includes one new species of Rhinothelepus Hutchings, 1974 (Telothelepodidae); one… 

Terebellidae (Annelida, Terebelliformia) from Lizard Island, Great Barrier Reef, Australia.

UNLABELLED In a survey of the polychaetes of the Lizard Island region, sixteen new species of terebellids, plus one previously described species, were found from material collected during the two

Phylogenetic analysis of the family Telothelepodidae Nogueira, Fitzhugh & Hutchings, 2013 (Annelida: Terebelliformia)

It is suggested that telothelepodids should be divided into four genera, according to the morphology of the lower lip, presence or absence of eyespots, and visibility of segment 1, and two of these genera are monotypic and plesiomorphic to two monophyletic genera.

Systematic review of the species of the family Telothelepodidae Nogueira, Fitzhugh & Hutchings, 2013 (Annelida, Terebelliformia), with descriptions of three new species

This work provides definitions and descriptions of these four genera and 15 species of Telothelepodidae, the most diagnostic generic and specific characters are discussed and a key for the identifications of members of all known species in this family is given.

On the diversity of the SE Indo-Pacific species of Terebellides (Annelida; Trichobranchidae), with the description of a new species

The study of material collected during routine monitoring surveys dealing with oil extraction and aquaculture in waters off Myanmar and in the Gulf of Thailand allowed us to analyse the taxonomy and diversity of the polychaete genus Terebellides (Annelida).

New species of Streblosoma (Thelepodidae, Annelida) from the Mediterranean Sea: S. pseudocomatus sp. nov., S. nogueirai sp. nov. and S. hutchingsae sp. nov.

Three new species of thelepodid polychaetes are reported along the Apulian coast of Italy, characterised by their C-shaped arrangement of uncini.

A new species of the genus Terebellides (Polychaeta, Trichobranchidae) from the Iranian coast.

A new species of the genus Terebellides (Polychaeta, Trichobranchidae) is primarily characterised by the presence of a large dorsal thoracic hump in larger specimens and ciliated papillae on the branchial lamellae.

The Terebelliformia-Recent Developments and Future Directions

Terebelliformia comprises a large group of sedentary polychaetes which live from the intertidal to the deep sea. The majority live in tubes and are selective deposit feeders. This study synthesises

Lizard Island Polychaete Workshop: sampling sites and a checklist of polychaetes.

This Zootaxa monograph describes 91 new species, 67 new records for Lizard Island, and 19 for Australia, and lists previously collected polychaete material from the region together with any published records for families which are not included in this volume.

The biology and ecology of coral rubble and implications for the future of coral reefs

Structural complexity provided by the living coral reef framework is the basis of the rich and dynamic biodiversity in coral reefs. In many cases today, the reduction in habitat complexity, from live



Redescription of Terebellides stroemii (Polychaeta, Trichobranchidae) and designation of a neotype

A large collection of specimens identified as T. stroemii from locations along the coasts of Norway was studied in the Natural History Museum, University of Oslo and will provide a baseline against which the potentially undescribed sibling species in the area can be compared and fully described.

A revision of the Australian Trichobranchidae (Polychaeta)

Previously the ‘cosmopolitan species’ Terebellides stroemii Sars, 1835 had been widelyreported from Australia; examination of material from near the type locality, Norway, revealed that the Australian material differed and represented fournew species.

Terebellidae (Polychaeta: Terebellida) from the Grand Caribbean region

Twenty-four genera of Terebellidae Grube, 1850, are described including one new genus and forty-four species recorded and characterized from the Grand Caribbean region and one species is reinstated with a new combination.

Morphology of terebelliform polychaetes, (Annelida: Polychaeta: Terebelliformia), with a focus on Terebellidae

The morphology of terebelliform polychaetes was investigated for a phylogenetic study focused on Terebellidae, and a discussion of the characters useful to distinguish between genera is given.

Cladistic analysis of the subfamily Trichobranchinae (Polychaeta: Terebellidae)

The monophyly of Trichobranchinae is clearly supported by the presence of long shafted uncini in thoracic neuropodia and by the absence of ventral shields, and an alternate way to number anterior segments is presented, based on a reinterpretation of prostomial and peristomial morphologies in different genera.

The continuing challenge of phylogenetic relationships in Terebelliformia (Annelida : Polychaeta)

The previously considered subfamilies of Terebellidae are raised to familial level and a new family is described, along with a discussion of character evolution in the Tere Bellidae.

Two new terebellid polychaetes (Polychaeta: Terebellidae) from the state of São Paulo, southeastern Brazil

Two new species of terebellid polychaetes are described, from material collected from the intertidal zone to 45 m deep off the State of Sao Paulo, southeastern Brazil, which are characterised by short, distally expanded tentacles, and by having up to four eyespots at each lateral margin of prostomium.

A new species of Streblosoma Sars, 1872 (Polychaeta, Terebellidae, Thelepodinae) from Brazil, with comments on Streblosoma oligobranchiatum Nogueira & Amaral, 2001

A new species of Streblosoma is described and the diagnosis of S. oligobranchiatum is emended to allow for variation in the number of branchial filaments and dental formula of uncini.

Taxonomy of polychaetes from the Hawkesbury River and the southern estuaries of New South Wales, Australia

The polychaete fauna of the Hawkesbury River and some other estuarine areas in central and southern New South Wales is described and over 180 species are recorded, of which 28 species and 4 genera are new: Harmothoe charlottae n.sp.

Phylogenetic relationships within the Terebellidae (Polychaeta : Terebellida) based on morphological characters

The phylogenetic relationships of terebellid genera were studied using a morphology-based parsimony analysis of 94 species, with members of the Ampharetidae and Alvinellidae as outgroups.
