Hi Barbara, 

Currently there are several people interested in this genus. Me, along with Juan Moreira, have recently published two articles (below) and we have another one about this genus in Icelandic waters under review, which I hope will soon be published. Right now I'm not in the lab, but next week I can send both to you. We would be happy to help with the study of the specimens from the Adriatic if you wish.

Asunto: [Annelida] Terebellides stroemi in the Adriatic? 

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,
