First, I would like to thank Dr. Perkins for clarifying my doubts.

I think that Annelida is a forum of discussion and, in my message, I simply
tried to express my doubts and my opinion. Of course, I am not such a type
of narrow-minded scientist that tries to keep using a family name if this
name is not correct.

Therefore, I agree with Dr. Perkins in that, and I quoted,

>however, I would prefer that a matter such as this be decided
>by an organisation such as the International Polychaetology Association.

These are my last words on this subject, I hope. Thus, I would also quote
Dr. Bellan and I say:

> "punto e basta"

Thanks again,

Daniel Martin
