Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis ''Aparaonis differs from other genera of Paraonidae in that the first segment has setae; branchiae number only 3 pairs and are present on segments 2-4; setae are of one kind — all are simple, distally pointed and smooth along their free lengths'' (Hartman, 1965: 135). [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment The genus Aparaonis Hartman, 1965 does not seem to belong to the family Paraonidae. It seems to be closer to the family Cirratulidae. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The generic name is composed by the Latin prefix a-, meaning 'away from', followed by the nominal genus of the family, Paraonis Grube, 1873, and presumably refers to the unique features of the genus that separate it from the other known members of the family. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Monotypic genus and described from one specimen. No further occurrences and status unclear. [details]

From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editordescription Setae present in the first segment; three pairs of branchiae on segments 2-4. All setae simple capillaries. [details]
