Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated, but evidently after some similarity (but also distinct) to the Scalibregmatidae genus Lipobranchius Cunningham & Ramage, 1888, thus probably Neolipobranchius was intended to be masculine gender. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorStatus The holotype of N. glabrus is not identifiable to genus or species and is a juvenile (fide Blake 2015: [as spelling Neolipobranchus] 89 "... inclusion in the Scalibregmatidae was not justified by the original authors"). Therefore this genus is here a nomen dubium (incertae sedis in Blake).  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated, but evidently after some similarity (but also distinct) to the Scalibregmatidae genus Lipobranchius Cunningham & Ramage, 1888, thus probably Neolipobranchius was intended to be masculine gender. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorStatus The holotype of N. glabrus is not identifiable to genus or species and is a juvenile (fide Blake 2015: [as spelling Neolipobranchus] 89 "... inclusion in the Scalibregmatidae was not justified by the original authors"). Therefore this genus is here a nomen dubium (incertae sedis in Blake).  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Persson et al. (2005), Paul et al (2010), Martinez et al (2013), and Law et al (2014) all use the same sequences (from voucher SNHM 75833) said to come from a Neolipobranchius sp. to suggest the genus is a Travisia synonym as this specimen clusters with Travisia species. No taxonomic information was published on the specimen (SMNH collection location 39.898 -69.6607, depth unknown, from offshore shelf NW Atlantic). The deepsea Neolipobranchius type species, N. glabrus, was collected from two degrees of latitude further South at 37.45, -68.6833, 4436 m deep.  [details]
