Hi!

First, I'd like to thank all for your quick and helpful 
answers. Your feedback was important for me, because help 
me to think about polychaeta's juveniles. Actually I 
wasn't sure if those individuals are Lysaretidae due to 
the setae types and the branchiae's presence.
In fact, I has 3 stations with those worms, one of them 
has some Marphysa belli's, Eunice sp.'s, Aponuphis 
bilineata's and Aponuphis ornata's individuals (adults). 
If Maria Cristina Gambi is right (I believe that's could 
be very probable), how can I identify the little 
specimens?
Have you some papers (or links) about juvenile stages in 
Eunice and/or Marphysa and/or Aponuphis genus?
I'll be very grateful!

See you there!
Roberto Martins
