Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis from Rainer (1973: 550): ''Prostomium rounded or bilobed anteriorly and with a tapering nuchal ridge posteriorly. Eyes present or absent. Gills commence on setiger II, are absent from setiger V, and continue posteriorly. Anterior setigers with winged capillaries in both rami. Setiger V enlarged, provided with modified setae of one or two kinds, usually accompanied by dorsal and ventral capillaries. Posterior notopodia may have modified dorsal setae. Bified hooded hooks present in posterior neuropodia from setiger VIII. Pygidium glandular, often as a broadly-flaring collar open dorsally.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. Paraboccardia is composed by the name of the genus Boccardia Carazzi, 1893, preceded by the prefix of Greek origin para- and meaning 'beside', 'next to', or 'near', referring to the similarity between the two genera, which were stated to differ in having neuropodial hooded hooks commencing on chaetiger VII (Boccardia) against chaetiger VIII (Paraboccardia).  [details]
