Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Foster (1969: 383): ''Prostomium triangular, flared anteriorly, lacking frontal horns, bearing two pairs of eyes. Peristomium fused with setiger one surrounding prostomium posteriorly as a yoke or collar; with no lateral wings or elevations. Four pairs of branchiae beginning on setiger two; first three pairs cirriform, fourth pinnate. Neuropodial lamellae of setiger two somewhat enlarged, triangular, directed ventrally. Pygidium with anal cirri. Hooded hooks in posterior neuropodia and notopodia; bidentate or multidentate. Dorsal membranous ridges connecting notopodial lamellae at some point along the body.''

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The name Apoprionospio is composed by the prefix of Greek origin apo-, meaning 'away from' or 'separate', and the generic name Prionospio Malmgren, 1867, and refers to the separation of the members of the new genus from Prionospio[details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorGrammatical gender Feminine. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Maciolek (1985) retained Apoprionospio Foster with just A. dayi and A. pygmaea. Later Sigvaldadottir (1998) found no justification for a separation from Prionospio. [details]
