Dear Annelid scientists!

My name is Jan Strugnell and I am currently working on a Census of  
Marine Life initiative investigating species that have been suggested  
to be present at both polar regions (and possibly cosmopolitan) in  
their distribution.   I include a list of polychaetes below which have  
been suggested to be present in the Arctic and Antarctic.

I am trying to track down tissue samples of these polychaetes from  
both poles (and also places in between where they exist) that have  
been fixed in ethanol or frozen and could be used for DNA barcoding  
(through the Guelph barcoding facility).

I was wondering if any of you had any of these samples, (stored in  
ethanol or frozen) that could be barcoded for this project?  Only a  
tiny piece of tissue would be required.

Yours sincerely,
