Dear colleagues,

International Polychaete Day has dawned brightly in New Zealand where I am based. A lovely winter day in Wellington.

As my contribution on behalf of  WoRMS (World Register of Marine Species) I've compiled a PDF of all Kristian Fauchald's taxa names that we have, structured by family, and with active links to the full WoRMS entries. You may be surprised to see some of families (nearly 40 of them) on which Kristian published, and where the concentration of names  and name changes are.  

The file is available here:  http://www.marinespecies.org/polychaeta/aphia.php?p=sourcedetails&id=198042
Or via the WPolyDb home page:  http://www.marinespecies.org/polychaeta/index.php

WoRMS Polychaeta was built from Kristian's own database, along with the existing ERMS and RAMS listings

(I don't imagine this list is error free - let me know what you spot)

Also at WoRMS Joao Gil has been working on recording & correcting our records of  Kristian's publications - he will tell you more about this later.

Best wishes,

Geoff Read  (chief Polychaeta editor, WoRMS)
