Taxonomy: For all marine species, Project Gastropods uses the taxonomy in the online database WoRMS. When starting a new article, do not use sources of taxonomic information that predate the 2017 revision for all gastropod groups ("Revised Classification, Nomenclator and Typification of Gastropod and Monoplacophoran Families" by Philippe Bouchet & Jean-Pierre Rocroi, Bernhard Hausdorf, Andrzej Kaim, Yasunori Kano, Alexander Nützel, Pavel Parkhaev, Michael Schrödl and Ellen E. Strong in Malacologia, 2017, 61(1–2): 1–526.) (can be dowloaded at Researchgate.net), substituting the previous classification of 2005 Taxonomy of the Gastropoda (Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005). If you need help with any aspect of an article, please leave a note at the Project talk page.
I'd rather expand than delete. Polychaetes can be very beautiful, and their parapodia are usually why, as the bird with its feathers. But this article is currently classified as a cell biology stub, when it's actually an (invertebrate) anatomy stub. I'm not familiar enough with the biology stub classification projects to do anything about this right now. --Eric Forste(talk) 05:11, 29 July 2005 (UTC)
