The multitentaculate Cirratulidae of the genera Cirriformia and Timarete (Annelida: Polychaeta) from shallow waters of Brazil.

Magalhães WF, Seixas VC, Paiva PC, Elias R - PLoS ONE (2014)

Bottom Line: The species Timarete oculata, originally described from Brazil and lumped into the Timarete filigera species complex, is herein revalidated and redescribed.The occurrence of the species Timarete filigera and Cirriformia tentaculata is not confirmed from the Brazilian coast.Descriptions, illustrations and a key to genera and species are provided.

ABSTRACT
A large number multitentaculate cirratulids have been described worldwide but most are only known through the original descriptions. Type material, voucher and recently collected specimens from Brazil were revisited in order to reveal their true identity and confirm the records of widely distributed species in this region. Six species are described, three of which are new, Cirriformia capixabensis sp. nov., Cirriformia chicoi sp. nov. and Timarete ceciliae sp. nov. COI and 16S sequences were obtained and used for inter-specific comparisons. Timarete caribous is reported from several localities along the Brazilian coast and a new synonym, Cirratulus melanacanthus, is proposed. The species Timarete oculata, originally described from Brazil and lumped into the Timarete filigera species complex, is herein revalidated and redescribed. The occurrence of the species Timarete filigera and Cirriformia tentaculata is not confirmed from the Brazilian coast. Descriptions, illustrations and a key to genera and species are provided.
