Annelida listers,

The Scamit site Worsfold copy is 2006. I have the impression it is only
part of what was presented from the 2006 workshop. Anyway, I notice
there is a later 2009 version of Tim Worsfold's Cirratulidae work, 114p,
with more sections, at the same UK site as Garwood's British Isles
Maldanidae guide I mentioned a while back. 

Worsfold, T.M., 2009. Progress on the identification of Cirratulidae in
British and Irish waters through the NMBAQC Scheme: 1996-2009. Report to
the NMBAQC Scheme participants. Unicomarine Report NMBAQCcir09, 114pp,
July 2009.
