Dear colleagues,

Desbruyères and Toulmond (1998) in their description of the ice worm, 
Hesiocaeca methanicola,  explicitly took a 'conservative position, waiting for 
further analysis' in assigning this species to Hesiocaeca although they were 
aware that Pleijel (1998) assigned it to Sirsoe (as Sirsoe A) and considered 
Hesiocaeca as incertae sedis.  

Does anyone know whether the generic affiliation of methanicola has been 
revised in the meantime?  

Metameric greetings,

Dieter
