Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorClassification [From Sendall & Salazar-Vallejo (2013:18)] "An analysis of morphology and six genes (Zrzavý et al. 2009) did not clarify the affinities for sternaspids because different approaches gave different topologies or affinities. Thus, their Bayesian combination indicates Sternaspidae are a sister group to a clade including sabellids-serpulids, sabellariids, and Trochochaeta- Spionidae-Poecilochaetus. The unweighted maximum-parsimony indicates they form a clade with sabellariids, which is a sister group to Sabellidae and Trochochaeta-Spionidae- Poecilochaetus. The weighted maximum-parsimony indicates they group with Fauveliopsidae, and together become a sister group for Sabellidae- Serpulidae, which is a sister group to Sabellariidae and the other grouped taxa of former analysis." [details]
