[Annelida] Capitella capitata

Dear all,
	The last I heard the JGI was well into sequencing "C. capitata"  and  
are probably close to a draft sequence sometime soon. I believe that  
they used "Grassle species number #1". The important thing is not  
that they use C. capitata sensu stricto but that they use the one  
that has been used for developmental and genetic studies. Elaine  
Seaver (evo-devo type) passed them the DNA and they are well aware of  
the species complex/naming issues.

So too late to advise them which one to use, but not too late to get  
a proper name on the beast they are using.
