Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Malmgren (1866: 391): "Corpus antice inflatum postice sensim attenuatum. Lobus cephalicus suborbiculatus flexuosus labium magnum fingens, cirris tentacularibus sat longis numerosissimis supra obsitus, infra laevis. Segmentum buccale subtus scuto late ovato versus orem inflexo sat magno. Branchiae nullae. Oculi nulli. Fasciculi setarum capillarium a segmento buccali incipientes in 13 segmentis obvii, uncinis et toris uncinigeris omnino destitutis. Setae capillares lineares apice attenuato paulo curvato haud limbatae. Pinnulae minutae uncinigerae a segmento quatuordecimo, h. e. primo pone segmentum ultimum setigerum, incipientes, usque ad extremum corporis obvii. Uncini minimi hamati uniseriales vertice conspicue unidentato. Scuta ventralia distincta per paria disposita, unum utrinque in ventre segmentorum c. 8—10 setigerorum.[details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated in the original description, origin uncertain. Maybe derived from the Greek verb ereutho, meaning 'to make red', 'to stain with red', or 'to blush', making reference to one variation of the coloration of the species: "Color saepissime albicans, interdum subaurantiacus" (Malmgren, 1866: 391; translation by the editor: 'colour often whitish, sometimes orange'). [details]
