It is a polynoid.  I would be surprised if the name got invalidated since it 
is one of the earliest described polychaetes.  It has been widely reported, 
thus it is possible that it has been, incorrectly, reported from a given area, 
and that somebody has made that correction and not made it clear that it 
concerns the local populations, not the species as such.

Hi All-

Does anyone know what the current status of Harmothoe imbricata is? Someone 
thought that this polychaete had been redescribed or placed into another 
family but there was no citation. If there is a current paper citing this 
change I would greatly appreciate the reference.  Otherwise I will assume that 
it is still a valid polynoid.  Thanks.
