Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Fauchald (1972: 246): ''The thorax has ten setigers of which the first setiger has notopodial setae only. The first two abdominal setigers are transitional. The first abdominal notopodium has pointed setae and the first neuropodium has both pointed setae and long-handled uncini. The second abdominal notopodium has both long-handled uncini and pointed setae and the neuropodia have long-handled uncini only. All remaining abdominal setigers have long-handled uncini only.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. The name Neonotomastus is composed by the Latin prefix neo-, meaning 'new' or 'recent', and the name of the genus Notomastus M. Sars, 1851, and presumably refers to the establishment of a new genus resembling Notomastus: ''Neonotomastus resembles Notomastus Grube (1850) [sic] in general body proportions, but differs in the number of thoracic setigers and in the distribution of setae'' (Fauchald, 1972: 244). [details]
