Some annelid larvae, as in the Sabellidae, have a metatroch and food groove and capture and transport particles, but they lack a mouth and do not ingest particles (Pernet, 2003).
Of those polychaete families found, only adult stages of Amphinomidae, Sabellidae, Spionidae and Syllidae were reported previously for this location (Dean 2009, 2012, 2017) (Table 2).

Among the 10 indicator taxa, unidentified Sabellidae, Mediomastus sp., Synchelidium sp., Ampelisca sp., Nemertea, Phyllodoce sp., and Minuspio cirrifera were consistently abundant with high SIM/SD ratio (>5).
In addition to serpulids, one species of sabellid (Family Sabellidae)--Glomerula piloseta--and a few species of cirratulids (Family Cirratulidae), build calcareous tubes (Vinn et al.
