World Polychaeta Database (WPolyDb)
A review of the classification of the Class Polychaeta (Annelida) with comments on the characters used to identify the different included taxa has led to the recognition of seventeen orders. All taxa down to the generic level are defined and a phylogenetic sequence suggested. Keys are presented to the families and genera of the Polychaetes.
