From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority Johnston (1846:447) appears to be the first to use Terebellidae as a family name. Hessle (1917:43) recognised this, stating that "Johnston stellte (1845) die Familie Terebellidae auf", whereas Grube (1850) was the first to recognise the "Terebellomorphen" group of families. Hartman Catalogue (1959:495) preferred Malmgren (1867) over the commonly cited Grube (1850), presumably because Grube (with use of Terebellacea) did not use a correctly latinised form, although he wrote a diagnosis of the family. Johnston (1846) is an earlier usage than Grube. Unlike Grube, he gave no diagnosis, but this is not required under ICZN Art.11.7. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorClassification Only subfamilies Terebellinae, Thelepodinae, and Polycirrinae are in use. See the additional sources for the history of higher classification within Terebellidae. Up to four subfamilies (with some names varying) have been used, and also some taxa have been placed in tribes. Subfamilies include Terebellinae, commonly in literature as Amphitritinae Malmgren, 1867, Artacaminae Malmgren, 1867, Thelepodinae Hessle, 1917 (was Thelepinae), and Polycirrinae Malmgren 1867, but their separation and extent have not been stable. Note that Amphitritinae is disused in favour of Terebellinae, and that Thelepinae was emended to Thelepodinae, but that for decades both Amphitritinae and Thelepinae were the accepted names in use, so there are many works where those names are in the title. Artacaminae is not currently used, as Artacama is included in Terebellinae. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorClassification Nogueira, Fitzhugh & Hutchings (2013) have proposed a re-organisation of Terebellidae, raising all the subfamilies to family-level, based on a morphology-based cladistic study, rather than re-including Trichobranchidae in Terebellidae. This rank inflation is not yet accepted. Although they did not formally assign the genera other than type genera, they attempted to include all genera practicable in their analysis (some were not), and their proposal appears to be as follows:
* Terebellidae (was Terebellinae): Terebella, (also Amphitrite, Amphitritides, Arranooba, Artacama, Articulatia, Axionice, Baffinia, Betapista, Eupolymnia, Eupistella, Hadrachaeta, Hutchingsiella, Lanassa, Lanice, Lanicides, Lanicola, Laphania, Leaena, Loimia, Longicarpus, Morgana, Naneva, Neoamphitrite, Neoleprea, Nicolea, Paramaphitrite, Paraxionice, Phisidia, Pista, Pistella, Proclea, Pseudoproclea, Ramex, Reteterebella, Scionella, Scionides, Spinosphaera, Stschapovella, Thelepides, & Tyira).
* Polycirridae (was Polycirrinae): Polycirrus (also Amaeana, Biremis, Enoplobranchus, Hauchiella, & Lysilla)
* Thelepodidae (was Thelepodinae): Thelepus (also Euthelepus, Pseudostreblosoma, Pseudothelepus (note it is unstated if this is the species under the homonym Pseudothelepus Hutchings 1997 or the valid Pseudothelepus Augener 1918, or both) & Streblosoma).
* Telothelepodidae (new family): Telothelepus (also Decathelepus, Glossothelepus, Parthelepus, & Rhinothelepus)
The authors did not provide a key to enable identification of the taxa belonging to their updated names.
