Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorClassification Included in the Sigalionidae by Fauchald (1977). Following Petersen (1998) they should be included in a separate family Pholoidae [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Worms of the genus Pholoe are common and abundant in marine benthos. I northern Europe, 1 to 3 species may be present in a single sample but not recognised as distinct. Four valid species are common in European inshore waters, but inadequate descriptions and species misidentifications have resulted in most of them being misidentified as the western North Atlantic P. minuta, not known to occur in European waters. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy RAMS puts this Genus under Sigalionidae [details]
