Additional information [Molecular data] Tomioka et al (2016: 548) report that "The COI sequence given in Blake et al. (2009, p. 32) lacks a portion that was erroneously identified as an ‘intron’." [details] Etymology teleta is from the Greek telete, defined as “initiation,” and refers to Capitella sp. I, the initial or first sibling species of Capitella identified in laboratory culture. [details] Importance Subject of extensive research on many aspects of its biology, physiology, genetics, and ecology. The genome is published. Previously publications referred to Capitella sp. I, an informal name following Grassle & Grassle (1976). [details] Type locality Laboratory culture originally from Woods Hole region, Massachusetts, USA, (Woods Hole = 41.5251, -70.6765) [details]
