A Corrigendum on
Bioluminescence in Polynoid Scale Worms (Annelida: Polynoidae)

by Moraes, G. V., Hannon, M. C., Soares, D. M. M., Stevani, C. V., Schulze, A., and Oliveira, A. G. (2021). Front. Mar. Sci. 8:643197. doi: 10.3389/fmars.2021.643197

In the original article, there was a mistake in Figure 1 as published. The taxa Hirudinidae, Capitellidae, Nephtyidae, and Opheliidae were misspelled. The corrected Figure 1 appears below.


Figure 1. Composite phylogenetic tree of annelid families based on recent phylogenetic and phylogenomic analyses. Note that not all annelid families are represented, as the position of many taxa still remains unresolved. The monophyletic class Clitellata is nested within the paraphyletic polychaetes. Branches highlighted in color indicate families with reported bioluminescent representatives. Colors are indicative of the general color emitted by species within that family.

The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. The original article has been updated.

Keywords: marine annelids, Polynoidae, scale worm, photoprotein, polynoidin
