Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Day (1963: 404): ''Small Nereidae generally similar to Micronereis but possessing two antennae. Proboscis without paragnaths but with a pair of toothed jaws. Prostomium with a pair of antennae and a pair of biarticulate palps. Two pairs of tentacular cirri. No apodous segment behind the peristome. First two segments uniramous, subsequent ones biramous. Setae are all homogomph spinigers.''
 [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Emended diagnosis by Banse (1977: 624): ''Gymnonereidinae with papillae on oral ring of proboscis. Jaws with teeth. Dorsal cirri simple throughout. Median body region without large vascularized dorsal cirrophores, transversal dorsal flaps, or long neuropodial presetal lips.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. The generic epithet Micronereides is composed by the name of the genus Micronereis Claparède, 1863, followed by the suffix of Greek origin -ides, a suffix of source or origin, and meaning 'pertaining to', 'son of' or 'descendant of', referring presumably to the morphological similarity between the two taxa, with the new genus being referred by Day (1963: 404) as ''Small Nereidae generally similar to Micronereis''. [details]
