Oweniidae and Flabelligeridae in NW Atlantic

A series of macrobenthic samples are currently being collected from the 
Faroe-Shetland Channel to the West and North of Shetland, U.K. and as 
with previous surveys in this region I shall be processing the polychaete 
component.  Previous sample sets (from depths of 100m - 2,200m) have 
thown up many identification uncertainties. The Oweniidae and 
Flabelligeridae in particular, amongst many other families, are culprits of 
containing several taxa that I am unable to name.  Consequently this time 
round I hope to determine where shortfalls in identification, particularly 
with respect to these two families, are a consequence of gaps in my 
collection of the literature and truly undescribed species.  Any 
references that could help would be gratefully recieved.
