Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorClassification The position of Chaetopteridae within the Polychaeta hierarchy is unclear. In molecular studies it has appeared basal to other Annelida, and morphologically with both spioniform grooved palps and terebelliform ⁄ sabelliform uncini it appears indicative of placing in Sedentaria. [details]
