Brief Summary

Comprehensive Description

Evolution

    Classification
    provided by World Register of Marine Species
    Zrzavý et al (2009) suggest the traditional "Scolecida" and "Canalipalpata" are both polyphyletic, forming instead two clades: one including Cirratuliformia and the "sabelloid-spionoid clade" (incl. Sternaspis, Sabellidae-Serpulidae, Sabellariidae, Spionida s. str.), the other ("terebelloid-capitelloid clade") including Terebelliformia, Arenicolidae-Maldanidae, and Capitellidae-Echiurida.
    Sabellariidae lie outside Sabellida and have Spionida affinities according to Capa et al (2012)
