Many species of Cirratulidae have been recorded from the Mediterranean Sea since the descriptions and figures of the Naples fauna in one of the first comprehensive studies of polychaetes by delle Chiaje, 1823–3022. Chiaje, SD. 1823–30. Memorie sulla storia e notomia degli animali senza vertebre del Regno di Napoli, Vol.4, 109–214 . Napoli: Dalla stamperia de’ Fratelli Fernandes.

Since delle Chiaje's publication, 25 bi-tentaculate taxa have been recorded from the Mediterranean. During recent sampling programmes Chaetozone carpenteri McIntosh, 191155. McIntosh, WC. 1911. Notes from the Gatty Marine Laboratory, St Andrews. No. XXXII . Annals and Magazine of Natural History, Series, 8(7): 145–173.
