Etymology The generic name Hesiosyllis refers to the doubts of Wesenberg-Lund (1950: 15) concerning if the taxon should be placed among the Syllidae or the Hesionidae: "The generic name which I propose for this peculiar specimen indicates that I am in doubt whether it is a Hesionid or a Syllid.

Classification Wesenberg-Lund (1950:15) was uncertain if Hesiosyllis belonged in Syllidae, presumably hence the name. Fauchald (1977) catalogued it in the Hesionidae, however San Martín (2003) treated it as in Eusyllinae, a synonym of Pionosyllis[details]
