I am attempting to construct a key to the polychaetes of Virginia, and I
was wondering if anyone knew the name and other references with the
description for a polynoidae species we have. It is described in the
"taxonomic guide to the polychaetes of the northern gulf of mexico" vol.
III, pg 21-20, and named "Malmgreniella sp. A". In the description, Dr.
Weston stated that Dr. Pettibone was currently describing this species, but
I have not come across any reference. The specimens I've looked at have 14
elytrae and 31 setigers.It is commensal with the brittle star Micropholis
atra. If anyone knows the name of this species and any reference for it I
would be most grateful- Thanks a lot, Aaron
