From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Diagnosis by Bakken & Wilson (2005: 525), modified from Qiu & Qian (2000: 1112-1113): "Eversible pharynx with pair of jaws, soft papillae on oral ring, paragnaths and occasionally soft papillae on maxillary ring. Prostomium with entire anterior margin, one pair of antennae, one pair of biarticulated palps and two pairs of eyes. Four pairs of tentacular cirri. Parapodia biramous, except first two pairs. Notopodia with dorsal and ventral ligule, and often prechaetal lobe present. Neuropodia with postchaetal lobe and ventral ligule. Notochaetae: homogomph spinigers and occasionally homogomph falcigers. Neurochaetae with homogomph or heterogomph spinigers and homogomph or heterogomph falcigers. Scanning electron micrographs show the ends of the chaetal shafts to have a large solitary tooth and a circular fringe of small teeth.[details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Orginal diagnosis by Kinberg (1865: 168): "Papillae incompletae, acervi ordinum 1 et 5 desunt, ordinum 6, 7 et 8 membranaceae; pedes dorsuales et ventrales separatae, anteriores et posteriores aequales ; branchiae foliaceae nullae; setae compositae: verutae et aliae dentatae dentibus externis extrorsum vergentibus et crescentibus."

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated, uncertain. The generic name Leonnates could be derived from Leonnatus (356 BC - 322 BC), a Macedonian officer of Alexander the Great. [details]
