Etymology Not stated in the original description. The name of the genus is formed by the prefix branch-, from the Greek branchia, a 'gill', and the genus name Amphinome Bruguière, 1789, type of the family Amphinomidae, referring presumably to the big development of the branchiae in the new amphinomid genus. [details]

Diagnosis Emended Barroso, Ranauro & Kudenov (2017) to include presence of a chaetiger 1 notopodial hook.

emended diagnosis: "Body oval to elongate, rectilinear. Prostomium with anterior and posterior lobes present bearing five cephalic appendages. Caruncle chevron-shaped, with median keel and paired lateral lamellae. Parapodia biramous. Notochaetae include spurred and non-spurred capillaries and harpoons; notopodial hooks present in chaetiger 1. Neurochaetae include spurred and nonspurred capillaries plus bifurcate chaetae. Notoacicula and neuroacicula hastate, former sometimes spinous. Branchiae dichotomously branching tufts from chaetiger 1, continuing to end of body. Dorsal cirri cirriform; ventral cirri conical to subulate. Dorsal anus opening on last one or two chaetigers. Pygidial cirrus medial, unpaired. " [details]

Diagnosis Original diagnosis by Hartman (1967: 42): "The body is ovate; branchiae are dendritically divided and present on all segments. The prostomium has four large eyes, three antennae, and is followed by a tripartite caruncle. Parapodia are biramous, have numerous long, slender setae; notopodia have a few thick spurred setae; neuropodia have similar slenderer setae and a few thick, long setae laterally serrated.[details]

Etymology Not stated in the original description. The name of the genus is formed by the prefix branch-, from the Greek branchia, a 'gill', and the genus name Amphinome Bruguière, 1789, type of the family Amphinomidae, referring presumably to the big development of the branchiae in the new amphinomid genus. [details]
