Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Hartman (1957: 305-306): "The prostomium is short and triangular. The first segment or peristomium is a smooth ring. The thoracic region is depressed near the middle. Transition from thorax to abdomen is abrupt with the change most apparent because of the difference in neuropodia. Branchiae are simple and lanceolate and first present from about the eighth segment; they are continued back to or near the posterior end and widely separated from each other across the middorsum. Neuropodial setae of the first three segments differ from those farther back in having coarser shafts and brushy tips [...]; all other thoracic setae are slender and distally pointed. Furcate setae are present in abdominal notopodia. Postsetal lobes of both notopodia and neuropodia are simple, longer to shorter slender lobes. Parapodia are lateral to dorsolateral in posterior segments. There are no interramal or ventral cirri, no subpodial or ventral fringe and no uncinate hooks or spines.[details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated by the author. 'Califia', also known as 'Calafia', is the name of a fictional queen ruling over a kingdom of black women in the mythical Island of California, that would be located near the Indies. The character was created by the Spanish writer Garci Rodríguez de Montalvo, who introduced her in his popular novel Las sergas de Esplandián, published in 1510. The name would be linked to what is known today as California, when the first Spaniards arriving to the eastern shores of Baja California Peninsula named the region after the legendary California, based on the assumption that it was a large island. [details]
