Abstract

Several poorly known species of the family Syllidae (Annelida) have been revised and re-described. New diagnosis and taxonomic remarks are provided for Erinaceusyllis erinaceus, Opisthosyllis neglecta comb. nov., Parapionosyllis parapionosylliformis comb. nov., Prosphaerosyllis semiverrucosa comb. nov. and Amblyosyllis granosa.
