Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The generic name Platysyllis derives from the combination of the prefix of Greek origin platy, meaning 'flat' or 'broad', and the name of the type genus of the family Syllidae, Syllis, making reference to the depressed or flattened body of the specimens.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Fauchald (1977: 85) considered the genus Platysyllis, based on its type species P. semperiana, as indeterminable.  [details]
