Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy A long Latin diagnosis is given. Erected solely for Terebella flexuosa Grube. Fauchald (1972:319) erected Paraxionice, named for the similarity to Axionice (and to Pista), but with 16 thoracic chaetigers and a single pair of branchiae (compared to 17 chaetigers and 2-3 pairs in Axionice). Both Axionice and Paraxionice were included in Pista sensu lato by Jirkov (2001:520), but earlier Holthe (1986) had treated Axionice as valid, and subsequently Nogueira et al (2013) appear to find it is distinct in a morphological cladistic study. [details]
