Dear colleagues,

I would like to know something more on the newest observations on the
records of Terebellides stroemi in the Mediterranean.

I know this species was considered as cosmopolitan, but it was later
discovered that species reported as T. stroemi from different parts of
the world actually belong to different species.

As far as the Adriatic sea is concerned the findings of Terebellides
here are still considered as T. stroemi.

Are there some doubts that the Adriatic specimens also belong to some
other species? Which species can be found in the Mediterranean?
If there are some papers for reading that you can recommend me I will be
very grateful. If you could send me pdf-s of some papers even better.

I'm trying to get:

Hutchings P.A., & Peart R. (2000). A revision of the Australian
Trichobranchidae (Polychaeta). Invertebrate Taxonomy.14(2): 225–272.

but we don't have an access to that journal, so I would appreciate if
you could send me the pdf.

And the last thing... I have many Terebellides specimens in my samples
(formalin fixed, thus suitable only for morphological analyses) so if
somebody would like to "take a look", collaborate on resolving the
Terebellides status in the Adriatic etc., I am willing to send my
specimens and help in work on it.

Many thanks,
