Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Hartman (1954: 19): "This differs from other nereid genera most strikingly for having paired fleshy transverse ridges [...] on the ventrum of anterior segments. The armature of the proboscis consists of paired distal jaws and soft papillae on the maxillary ring only; the oral ring is bare. The first segment or penstomium is a smooth apodous ring. The first two parapodial segments are uniramous; all others ate biramous. Notopodia have spinigerous, composite setae and single acicula; neuropodia have spinigers and falcigers. In ovigerous adults the median and posterior segments have paired, papillar processes, presumably coelomostomes, located on the dorsal side of notopodia, within the base of the dorsal cirrus."

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. The name of the new genus is composed by the name of the genus Nereis Linnaeus, 1758, the type of the family, preceded by the prefix australo-, from the Latin adjective australis and meaning 'southern' or 'Australian', presumably making reference to the southern origin of the genus and its type species, or to their type locality, Australia.  [details]
