From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Emended diagnosis by García-Garza et al. (2009: 810): ''Thorax with eleven chaetigers with bilimbate capillary chaetae. First chaetiger biramous. First two abdominal chaetigers with bilimbate capillaries on both rami, following ones with hooded hooks. Lateral organs and branchiae present.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Fauchald (1972: 246): ''The thorax has eleven setigers with pointed setae only; the first setiger has setae only in the neuropodium; all other parapodia are biramous. The first two abdominal setigers have pointed setae only; all others have long handled uncini.''

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated, unclear. The name Notodasus is composed by the prefix of Greek origin noto-, meaning 'the back', followed by the Greek adjective dasus, meaning 'hairy' or 'shaggy'. Maybe it refers to the presence of notopodial bilimbate capillary chaetae up to chaetiger 13, or to the presence of bilimbate capillary chaetae in the first two abdominal chaetigers.  [details]
