Synonymy An assertion of the generic re-assignment of P. blacki and P. australiensis is not available in the literature. However, Pleijel (1998) proposed that P. blacki could belong either to Ophiodromus [now Oxydromus] or to Parasyllidea. Martin et al 2015 placed Parasyllidea as a synonym of Oxydromus. [details]
