From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Lamelleulepethus agrees with Grubeulepis Pettibone in all respects, except for the addition of the unique large ventral lamellae on the middle region of the body. Although differing in shape and arrangement, they are like the ventral lamellae in Gastrolepidia Schmarda and Paralepidonotus Horst in the Polynoidae because they all have similar attachment on the ventrolateral sides of the bases of the neuropodia. [details]
