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]
