Scolecodonts & co

Dear colleagues,

As many of you know, much of our knowledge about fossil eunicemorphs is
derived from a series of fine studies by several Polish invertebrate
paleontologists, mostly with the Instytut Paleobiologii (Polish Academy of
Sciences). Among them is Huber Szaniawski, who a couple of years ago
co-authored with Minoru Imajima a very interesting interpretation of the
phylogenetic relationships of the Hartmaniellids.

I just got this message from him:

"" last scolecodont papers on polychaetes: 

1. "Scolecodonts", a kind of text book in the form of a chapter in the book
"Palynology- Principles and Applications" edited by J.Jansonius and D.C.
McGregor. 1996. 

2. "Hartmaniellidae - living fossils among polychaetes".
Acta Paleontologica Polonica 41. 1996 (with M. Imajima). I have still a lot
of reprints of the first paper and don't know what to do with them, having
no contacts with polychaetologists. Are there any list of specialists in
polychaetes or Polychaeta News in the Internet?""

Please, write to:

It seems than in spite of the terrific potential for interaction between
paleontologists and neontologists in polychaete research (mostly but not
solely in relation with Eunicemorph phylogeny), there continues to be a
gulf between us.
