Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Benham (1916: 138): ''The peristomium is produced laterally and ventrally to form a large, widely extending, collar-like lip (Cheilos = lip); the base of the notopodium is raised into a lamelliform expansion exceeding in height the rest of the parapodium throughout the greater part of the body.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Cheilonereis is composed by the Greek noun cheilos, meaning 'lip', and the name of the genus Nereis Linnaeus, 1758, type genus of the family, and refers to the shape of the prostomium, which ''is produced laterally and ventrally to form a large, widely extending, collar-like lip'' (Benham, 1916: 138).  [details]
