Make a note of the following url to the Ward & Fauchald 1997 Polychaete
Bibliography, which can be downloaded free in the DOS version at Polychaete
Resources (see below). A link to the url below (an online version from Ulm
University) is also there.
This is a good starting point when you need information on (most) polychaetes
from the 1700s to about 1997. Over 17,400 references are included. For some
papers all the included species are listed, for others, only the genus or
family, and for a small number, only the title and reference.
However, despite admitted errors and omissions, this list is an enormous help
and a very easy way to get a list of most of the important papers even if you
do not have access to electronic searching with something like Biosis (part of
WebSPIRS). The database has been made available to the public by the
Smithsonian Institution. Moreover, this database goes back to the 1700s, and
very few other sources do. The most recent version of WebSPIRS only goes back
Using the specific name mossambica in Notes; 20 references were found, 13 of
which deal with Nauphanta/Marphysa/Eunice mossambica.
The Natural History Museum, London, also has some information on the web. See
the following url (found by searching for Nauphanta mossambica with
Google often finds information not present in other sources, so try this
If you tell us what kind of information you would like (biology, taxonomy,
other), it is more likely you will get some useful feedback.
Good luck with your work.
