Re Dutra's message:

I cannot offhand remember any references to duration of chaetae.  Jaws
have been done, especially by Colbath in a series of papers 
J. Paleont. 54(2); Lethaia 19 and Micropaleont 34(1) are a series of
paleontological references.  

I would be very interested in seeing if anybody has any real
documentation of chaetae in the depth of cores; I have seen them in
surface sediments, but since I rarely go into cores (only under duress) I
do not have any personal observations from that source.

I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction inre the
existence/identification/duration of polychaete and other annelid body
parts (possibly setae?) in core samples of marine sediments. I'm not an
expert in the field and would appreciate any citations or other leads.
