Polychaetes are an enormous spectacular diverse group where identification is time consuming and difficult even for an expert in the field. This site is not meant for an identification key but for novices in the field to become familiar with the diversity of Class Polychaeta. There are 102 species displayed on this site encompassing 30 families. These species were collected off the coast of northern California by the Ocean Baseline Survey Report in 1990. Species were identified by Lorrie Bott, with the assistance of Vicki Frey and Bonnie Lesley.
