Are you looking for any polychaete reefs or only the reefs made by
If sabellariids sand-reefs are the case, it is probably that just Sabellaria
will appear in databases. In Asia, some records have been made for other
sabellariids (e.g. Idanthyrsus, Lygdamis, Gesaia,
Neosabellaria,Tetreres). However, not all genera have the gregarious
settlement, and the bathymetric ranges also vary. You can find more precise
information in the revision made by Dr. Kirtley in 1994.
Let me know if there is something else I am able to assist you.
