Following Tebble and Chambers (1982) -  Polychaetes from Scottish Waters, 
part 1 Family Polynoidae. Royal Scottish Museum Studies, Edinburgh -  to 
identify specimen of Harmothoe, one has to look for bidentate or unidentate 
chaetae. This works very well for larger animals. Younger animals, however, 
only have a few bidentate chaetae, and one has to look very carefully to 
find them. Does anyone know another (easier) way to identify the younger 
specimen?
