Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Mackie et al, 2015: "Prostomium anteriorly bearing pair of antero-ventral palps, pair of dorso-lateral antennae, and a postero-dorsal median antenna; eyes lacking. Nuchal organs pair of dorso-lateral ciliated grooves between posterior prostomium and anterior margin of segment 1. Peristomium ventrally fused with prostomium and segment 1, bearing transverse slit-like mouth. Two pairs of tentacular cirri on segment 1; parapodia and chaetae lacking. Anterior few segments with short muscular axial pharynx, proboscis short and bulbous, jaws lacking; gut tubular, lateral gut caecae may be present, extending into parapodia. Body and parapodia smooth, lacking papillae. Parapodia simple, with numerous bidentate neurochaetae in two groups, one above and one below several parallel neuroaciculae, and separate single notoacicula (not associated with dorsal cirri); lacking well-developed pre- or post-chaetal lobes or lamellae. Dorsal cirri larger than ventral cirri. Single pair of pygidial cirri. Sexes may be dimorphic with smaller males."  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSpelling Occasional misspellings, mostly not in taxonomic reports, exist as 'Antonbrunnia' instead of Antonbruunia. In particular in 2013 when a new species was found off Scotland the press release misspelled the name and consequently it appeared misspelled in a number of press reports, e.g., in Four-new-species-of-sea-creatures-found-off-Scotland[details]
