For an identification key of Ampharetidae found on hydrothermal vents and cold seeps see Reuscher et al. (2011).
- Reuscher, M., Fiege, D. & Wehe, T. (2011). Terebellomorph polychaetes from hydrothermal vents and cold seeps with the description of two new species of Terebellidae (Annelida: Polychaeta) representing the first records of the family from deep-sea vents. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom. doi:10.1017/S0025315411000658.
A description of the family, including a comprehensive discussion of the relevant taxonomic characters and a list of described species can be found in Holthe (1986).
