Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis "Like Streptosyllis in having the pharynx strongly sinuous and unarmed and in lacking nuchal flaps such as characterize Amblyosyllis. It differs from the former genus in having only composite setae and in having these of the ordinary structure, the appendage of a simple, fringed form not covered by a membrane. Eyes two pairs instead of three. Tentacular cirri two pairs. These, as also the tentacles and notocirri, short, articulated. Neurocirriattached proximally." [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The generic name Campesyllis is composed by the name Campe, a half-dragon monster of the Greek mythology with a woman's head and upper body, and a scorpion-like tail, and the name Syllis, the type genus of the family Syllidae, and probably refers to the fact that the new genus is a mixture of characters of different syllid genera.  [details]
