I've added a record for Capitella sp. I to the World Polychaeta Database (WPD).  This redirects to C. teleta.


I'm not entirely sure this will be approved of in all circles since it's only an OTU, if a very widely used one, but it may help 'the public' out there.
Also searches for the vernacular/common name of Capitella sp. I will find the two records

Let me know if you'd like to see anything else helpful added or linked to either record.
