Publication
World Polychaeta Database (WPolyD).
Published in 26 November 1868 according to the front matter following the title page of the volume, although the volume is for 1870.
[None. Work starts as:]
In the preceding volumes of the 'Journal of the Linnean Society,' Vol. VIII. pp. 172-202, and Vol. IX. pp. 31-38, I have communicated two papers to the Linnean Society, entitled ''Contributions towards a Monograph of the Aphroditacea.'' In most of the systems of arrangement of the Annelides, the species of the group Amphinomacea succeed those of the Aphroditacea; and I now propose following up those papers by some contributions towards a further knowledge of the species of Amphinomacea also.
The few species known to Pallas and Gmelin were all arranged in the genera Aphrodita and Terebella. Bruguière first separated them from Aphrodita, and formed a distinct genus to receive them, to which he gave the name Amphinome. These worms differ much from the Aphroditacea, by the want of those organs called eltytra, and by the presence of an uninterrupted series of branchiae, which occur on almost all the segments of the body, and which do not alternate, as in these latter, with cirri. Many of them are very long and present a play of fine iridescent colours; most of them are natives of tropical seas. Since the genus Amphinome was formed by Bruguière, great additions have been made, several new genera and even distinct families have been formed; and as our knowledge of the various species which form this group increases, it will no doubt be found necessary to form several more.
