Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType species Fauvel, (1923: 289) does not name a type species. He included four species first named in Pionosyllis by Perantoni (1903). These are P. gestans, P. papillosa, P. elegans, & P. minuta. Hartman (1959: 215) simply listed the first of Fauvel's recombinations, 'Parapionosyllis gestans' as type species, thus its original name Pionosyllis gestans became type species by subsequent designation. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Parapionosyllis is said to be almost identical to Brania, but having a single pair of tentacular cirri rather than two pairs.
Diagnosis. Body small to minute. Prostomium with 2 pairs of eyes and, sometimes, a pair of eyespots, 3 bowling-pin shaped antennae. Palps partially fused, distal half or 1⁄3 free of each other. Single pair of tentacular cirri, bottle- or bowling-pin shaped, located lateroventrally. Dorsal cirri on all parapodia, short, bowling-pin shaped. Parapodial lobes conical, with an small, thin distal rounded papilla. Parapodial glands present. Pharynx provided with an anterior tooth, surrounded by soft papillae. Compound chaetae with unidentate blades provided with a subdistal spine and rounded tip; aciculae with a rounded, slightly hollowed tip. Dorsal simple chaetae usually subdistally serrated. Ventral simple chaetae sigmoid, usually unidentate. Mature males with natatory chaetae; mature females brooding eggs or juveniles ventrally, lacking natatory chaetae [details]
