Magalhães, Wagner F. ; Bailey-Brock, Julie H. 2010: Redescription of Cirriformia crassicollis (Kinberg, 1866) and Timarete hawaiensis (Hartman, 1956) new combination, (Polychaeta: Cirratulidae), endemic polychaetes to the Hawaiian Islands. Zootaxa 2625: 53–62.
Cirriformia crassicollis (Kinberg 1866) and Timarete hawaiensis (Hartman 1956), new combination are redescribed. Cirriformia hawaiensis is here referred to the genus Timarete Kinberg 1866, because the branchial filaments on chaetigers 10-18 are shifted dorsally forming a dorsolateral bulge over the notopodia. T. hawaiensis and C. crassicollis are presently known only from the Hawaiian Islands and are commonly associated with changing ecosystems such as harbors and dense populations of tube worms.
