A note[edit]

Two things

1. This article really needs expanding by someone who knows the polychaetes better.

2. Sandworm links very nicely to an article on Frank Herbert's fictional creatures so I changed the links, since none of the articles they would refer to are written yet. Still, some kind of disambiguation page should probably be made on sandworm.

what do they eat?[edit]

And how about Barry, the Corwall Acquarium monster —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.82.52.106 (talk) 16:18, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Contradiction in article: polyphyletic vs. paraphyletic[edit]

The lede says that they are a polyphyletic class, whereas the "Taxonomy and systematics" section says that they are thought to be paraphyletic. I'm not sure if one of these statements is simply wrong and needs to be corrected to match the other, or if this is an active matter of dispute and both viewpoints need to be presented, but either way, the contradiction needs to be addressed. Does anyone know? —RuakhTALK 02:38, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
