Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Ehlers (1908): ''Lang fadenförmig, gleichmäßig gegliedert; Kopflappen mit unpaarem Scheitelfühler. Parapodien mit dorsalen und ventralen Höckern, mit einfachen Capillarborsten und in den hinteren Segmenten mit Nadeln, mit einfachen Rückencirren und in beschränkter Zahl vorderer Segmente mit dorsalen Kiemen.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated in the original description. The generic epithet is composed by the combining form cirro-, meaning 'filament' or 'tendril', followed by the New Latin word phorus, from the Greek phoros and meaning 'bearing' or 'carrying', referring presumably to the presence of simple dorsal cirri on the type species. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType designation According to Article 68.2.1 of the ICZN (1999), Cirrophorus branchiatus is the type of the genus by 'original designation', as Ehlers (1908: 124) applied the expression ''n. g. n. sp.'' to the species. [details]
