The best thing to start with would be a copy of the Taxonomic Atlas of the
benthic fauna of the Santa Maria Basin and the western Santa Barbara Channel.
Volumes 4-7 treat the polychaetes; it is available from the Santa Barbara
Museum. Search Google for "Taxonomic Atlas Series" to get more information.
This is the single most up-to-date work available. Each species is treated in
detail and you will probably find answers to most of your questions.
When you get to those not treated, let us know what you still lack. Note that
volume 4 (= Annelida, Part 1) (Oligochaeta + Polychaeta: Phyllodocida) of the
Taxonomic Atlas first came out in 1994 and was reprinted in a revised edition
Good luck with the project!

Re: Polychaete and Echiurid taxonomy
I have been hired, on a short term basis, to update a 20 year old list of
marine invertebrates from the cold temperate Northeast Pacific. With limited
time and resources, I have had difficulty finding information on many species
contained in the polychaete/echiurid section of the list. Does anyone have
any suggestions for references or websites that may be useful? I have also
attached a list of species; I realize it is extensive but any input regarding
any of the names and their current standing would be much appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your time.
