We are presently reidentifying all Glycera specimen we collected in the last
5 years. We use the key Brendan O'Connor published some years ago (J. of
Natural History, 21, 167-189, 1987). However, at the last point (11) we are
not sure what is ment. The socket for articulation of the terminal section
of the composite chaetae are either deeply cleft (G. lapidum comples) or not
cleft (G. mimica). However, in fig. 14 and 16 it looks like both are cleft.
Has anyone used this key and is able to explain?
Does anyone know whether the G. lapidum complex has been further analyzed
