Info

Amblyosyllis Grube, 1857

Family characteristics of the Syllidae include: a prostomium with two pairs of eyes, and sometimes a couple of eyespots; three antennae and paired palps.

Amblyosyllis is a worldwide distributed group of annelids mainly found in coastal environments. It is well known among the polychaete specialists mostly because of its notable beauty, showing bright colourful patterns and outstanding long and coiled appendices.

Amblyosyllis is a monophyletic genus easy to identify due to its distinct diagnostic features; however, the species and their boundaries are, in most cases, not well defined.

Amblyosyllis species have been found in the intertidal and subtidal zones (0–200 m), on a large variety of substrates and in association with different organisms (rocky shores, coarse sand, algae, ascidians, bryozoans, sponges, mollusks, etc.). Very little is known about the diet of most syllids , but some members of Amblyosyllis have been observed feeding on sponges.
