Thanks Geoff,

I'm unfamiliar with the way people usually contribute to such databases.
For instance, I've seen mistakes. How, and to whom, shall I submit my 
contributions? To the lead editor = you?
Cheers

Users who work via http://www.marinespecies.org/polychaeta/  also now get to see a nice map if there's  distribution or type locality data entered (example: http://www.marinespecies.org/polychaeta/aphia.php?p=taxdetails&id=579997).
