Polychaetes: British Amphinomida, Spintherida and Eunicida

The Polychaetes: British Amphinomida, Spintherida and Eunicida Snynopsis covers the groups known in older literature as the amphinomids, spintherids and eunicids – groups including genera notoriously difficult to identify.

Polychaetes are one of the most widespread, abundant and diverse elements of the British – and indeed the world – marine fauna. They dominate many habitat types, occur in or on all types of substratum, in waters of all levels of salinity, and at all depths in the ocean.
