Help with some deep-sea taxa

Colleagues,

In the process of maintaining our deep-sea hydrothermal vent faunal
database, I have come across families and genera of invertebrates for
which I was unable to find any records in the CD-ROM version of the
Zoological Record (1978-1996):

CRUSTACEA:             POLYCHAETA:        CNIDARIA:
   Callopiidae            Amathys             Chondrophellia
   Criptoniscidae         Bathykurila         Cyanathea
   Paralubbockiidae       Hesiocaeca
   Iorania                Orbiniella      POGONOPHORA:
   Mirocaris              Orseis              Siphonobranchia
   Oradarea
   Thimopides          GASTROPODA:        NEMERTEA:
                          Vetulonia           Thermanermertes
ECHINODERMATA:
   Chirodota
   Ophioctenella

If anyone can help me with citations to these, I would be very
appreciative.  I am after systematic citations and information on their
distribution as I need to know if they are endemic to hydrothermal
vents.  Much thanks!
