Polychaetes: British Chrysopetaloidea, Pisionoidea and Aphroditoidea
Polychaetes are one of the most widespread, abundant and diverse elements of the British - and indeed the world - marine fauna. They dominate many habitat types, occur in or on all types of substratum, in waters of all levels of salinity, and at all depths in the ocean.
This Synopsis is part of a series on the class Polychaeta (phylum Annelida). For additional orders of polychaetes, see Synopsis 32 and Synopsis 44.
