Genus Syllis Lamarck, 1818 

Syllis Lamarck, 1818: 318  .— San Martín, 1992: 168 –170; 2003: 336–341. Type species. Syllis monilaris Lamarck, 1818 

Remarks. Syllis  is one of the taxonomically most difficult genera within the Syllidae  due to the high diversity, lack of detailed descriptions and confusion in the generic nomenclature ( San Martín, 1992). The genus currently comprises more than 130 species and is not homogeneous ( San Martín, 2003), so further revisions are necessary. Following other authors ( San Martín, 1984, 1992, 2003; Licher, 1999), subgenera are not accepted herein and Typosyllis  is considered a synonym of Syllis ( San Martín, 2003)  .
