Dear Geoff,

I just noticed the discussion regarding the Travisia data in the annelid list. I checked our paper again and it seems we submitted an obvious erroneous table with accession numbers, I cannot reconstruct at the moment what happened there. However, the sequences in Genbank are correct (even with sometimes different accession numbers... - sorry for wasting your time) and our results are completely congruent with the phylogeny of an extended dataset on this topic in this nice publication:

Law, Dorgan, Rouse (2014) Relating divergence in polychaete musculature to different burrowing behaviors: A study using Opheliidae (Annelida). J Morphology 275, 548-571.

Further Travisia sequences supporting the placement of this taxon as sistergroup to Scalibregmatidae were published in this study.

All the best,


P.S.: Could you please forward this mail to the annelid list?
