provided by wikipedia EN

Orbiniidae is a family of polychaete worms.[1] Orbiniids are mostly unselective deposit feeders on marine detritus. They can be found from the neritic zone to abyssal depths.[2]

The family was revised in 1957 by Hartman [3] and some further revisions were made by Blake in 2000.[4]
