Dear colleagues,

For the moment we are working on the methods, allowing to determine type 
of reproduction of terebellid just looking on preserved material, without its 
dissecting. It seems fairily and unreal, but anyway seems to be a true. To 
verify our hypothesis we need in some data on their biology. Sure we used all 
published data, but there are no a lot of such. May be somebody have 
unpublished data wich we can use for verifying? Specifically, we need in 
following information concerning to Terebellinae (=Amphitritinae) only 
concerning type of brooding: 1. intratubular 2. extratubular in cocoons, 
gelatinous mass etc. 3. other. For the moment we think that all Pista s.lato, 
Lanassa, Leaena, Paramphitrite, Proclea and Laphania have intratubular 
brooding while Amphitrite s.lato, Amphitritides and Baffinia have no.  

Wormly, Igor Jirkov & Martha Leontovich
