Hello Stanislas

Nothing wrong with you - Yes, the Synopsis has a very limited number of 
species to choose from.  Try to get a copy of 'Revision of Onuphis, Nothria 
and Paradiopatra (Polychaeta: Onuphidae) Based on Type Material'  by 
Kristian Fauchald, Smithsonian Contributions to Zoology No. 356, Smithsonian 
Institution Press 1982. 1-109. for a much wider selection.  Maybe someone 
has a pdf they could provide - I only have a photocopy.

Cheers, Sue

> Speciment have been collected in South Brittany, France and I do have 
> "true" specimen of Nothria conchylega (Sars, 1835) from that region with 
> the stout hooked chaeta from chaetiger 1 & 2.

> So, what is wrong with me?  Does anyone have a better key with a better
