Description differences from O. humesi. "Oxydromus okupa sp. nov. differs from O. humesi in body measurement proportions. Accordingly, O. okupa sp. nov. has the body width measured without parapodia proportionally narrower with respect to the body width measured with parapodia, and it has also fewer segments. The new species also has the cephalic appendages proportionally longer with respect to prostomium length, particularly in the case of lateral antennae (more than 16% longer), and the distance between anterior and posterior eye pairs is also significantly longer, too. All ratios concerning parapodial measurements are also higher for O. okupa sp. nov., with the most marked differences being at the level of the dorsal cirrostyle vs. the corresponding dorsal lobe (15-22%) and the cirrophore (9-13.5%). Serration near blade tip as long as blade width."  [details]

Etymology authors: "epithet “okupa” refers to the Okupas (i.e., the Spanish squatters), a movement that emerged in the 80s as a response to the ever-increasing difficulty of housing opportunities. Okupation means squatting in empty buildings for the own use of the okupas, which implies self-organisation and alternative relationship mechanisms, in a parallel way as symbiotic polychaetes interact with their hosts and with the whole ecosystem." Not stated but assumed to be a noun in apposition, thus unmodifiable. Oxydromus is masculine. [details]
