Calcisabella piloseta, a new genus and species of Sabellinae (Polychaeta: Sabellidae).
The family includes about 490 species that fall into two clades, the subfamilies Fabriciinae and Sabellinae (Rouse and Pleijel, 2001).
According to recent phylogenies (Rouse and Fitzhugh, 1994; Fitzhugh and Rouse, 1999), these genera are not clustered in any particular sub-clade of the Sabellinae: some (e.g., Amphicorina, Myxicola) arise from deep nodes in the tree, and others (e.g., Laonome, Schizobranchia) from shallow nodes.
