Leontovich, M. K.; Zhirkov, I. A. 2011. New data on the species of the genus Pista (Polychaeta: Terebellidae) from the Russian Far-eastern seas. Biologiya Morya (Vladivostok) 37(5): 391-395
World Polychaeta Database (WPolyD)
Two species of the genus Pista (Polychaeta: Terebellidae) - P. brevibranchiata Moore, 1923 and P. incarrientis Annenkova, 1925 - are redescribed based on materials from the Russian Far-eastern seas. The former species was not previously recorded in this region. Pista shizugawaensis Nishi et Tanaka, 2006 is regarded as a junior synonym of P. brevibranchiata Moore, 1923. Because of the vague original description of Pista zachsi Annenkova, 1925 and the loss of its type material, this species should be considered as incertae sedis.
