Glyceridae types

Hi

My name is Markus Boeggemann. In the course for my Ph. D.-thesis I am
carrying out a taxonomic-systematic revision of all world-wide described
Glyceridae (Annelida: Polychaeta) with application of light microscopy and
scanning electron microscopy. Proboscidial papillae studied with SEM
techniques seem to be a reliable character for the identification of
Glyceridae (FIEGE & BOEGGEMANN 1997: The proboscidial papillae of some
European Glyceridae; Proc. of 5th Intern. Polychaete Conference).
Type-description and illustrations for many Glyceridae are extremely
vague, making identification to species level difficult or even
impossible. Based on an examination of the original material I want to
review and clarify the synonymy of all the species that have been
described.

The following type material seem to be lost, but if anybody knows
something about the whereabouts of these holo-, syn- and paratypes,
please send the information to my e-mail number: 

mboeggem at sng.uni-frankfurt.de

If you find some of the type material in your collection, please send the
species to the following address:

Forschungsinstitut Senckenberg
Sektion Marine Evertebraten II
Senckenberganlage 25
60325 Frankfurt am Main
Germany

Dr. D. Fiege (Curator for Polychaeta) will take responsibility for the
material.

Thank you very much for your help!

Sincerely,

Markus Boeggemann
