Dear listmembers,

I'm doing a comparative study on functional morphology of some nereids and
would therefore be interested in knowing more about their classification. I'm
aware that the classification of polychaete in general is still not generally
agreed upon. But does any of you know of some sources where I can get the most
up to date classification of the genus in the subfamily Nereidinae and the
species in the genus Nereis? I'm particular interested in trees that show how
closely related the various genus and species are to each other.
