Hi all,

I am from Ege University, Turkey and studying on taxonomy and ecology of 
Polychaeta distributed along the Turkish coast. My phd thesis is taxonomical 
and ecological features of Eunicidae distributed along the Turkish coast of 
Levantine Sea and my supervisor is Melih Ertan Çinar. Unfortunately, I read 
your mails about Eunice norvegica from the gill of horse mackerel (!), and I 
need to write something about it. Yes, I disappointed when I saw this paper. 
I agree with all comments, it is really poor and bad work. We don't know 
anything about  "the paper" in question. How did they determine the parasite 
as E. norvegica?? Also we don't know the authors and they didn't ask for 
help for identification or confirmation.  I wrote something to the editor of 
the journal. If he will response to me, I will share with you. I'm very 
sorry as a Turkish scientist studying on polychaetes and I hope it will not 
be repeated.

Best wishes from Turkey!
