Hello Barbara,

They are in World Register of Marine Species registered as in the region
via the European Register. You can track the authorship reference info
there & in Hartman's catalogue & bibliography pair. Let me know if you
find any errors in the WoRMS entries to fix.

I'm sure there are people who can fill in the local background literature
better than I can, but contact me offlist if you need more help.

A good source might be:
Westheide, W. 1990:  Polychaetes: Interstitial Families.  Synopsis of the
British Fauna New Series 44: 1-152.

Of which I think there's an updated edition. Authors publishing on
Protodrilus taxonomy include von Nordheim, and C. Jouin.
