Classification The position of Chaetopteridae within the Polychaeta hierarchy is unclear. In molecular studies it has consistently appeared basal to the Sedentaria and Errantia Annelida groups, while morphologically with both spioniform grooved palps and terebelliform ⁄ sabelliform uncini it appears indicative of placing in Sedentaria. [details]

Diagnosis There are four valid Chaetopteridae genera, all with three broadly similar body regions (tagma) and knobbed spines on chaetiger 4, and a pair of palps, but otherwise distinct from each other, although species assigned to Phyllochaetopterus and Spiochaetopterus may overlap. See each genus for the diagnoses but here are some important distinctions. Chaetopterus has 5 tagma B segments of which 3 have a unique piston-like morphology for pumping water. It is the only genus with short palps. Mesochaetopterus most often has 2 tagma B segments. Phyllochaetopterus and Spiochaetopterus may have 20 or more tagma B segments. Phyllochaetopterus and Spiochaetopterus have tube walls of chitin-like material, and Chaetopterus and Mesochaetopterus have tube walls of parchment-like layered secretions. Phyllochaetopterus has a separate pair of notopodial cirri on segment A1. Spiochaetopterus usually has just one chaetiger 4 spine. [details]
