Dear Dave

I don't know that species, nor have any description here, however, if the name "dibranchis" means it only has two branchiae (1 pair), it probably belongs to Pistella Hartmann-Schröder, 1996.

> Does anyone know what the current status of Pista dibranchis Gibbs, 1971 is? I have a terebellid from Papua New Guinea which matches Gibbs’ original description from the Solomon Islands. According to Zoological Records, this species was placed in Scionella by Hothe (1986), but it is not mentioned in Saphronova’s review of this genus (1991). I have come across several web pages that have it listed as P. dibranchis and I was wondering which name is currently valid. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
