Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Hutchings & Murray (1984: 75): ''Fusiform body with ventral groove running along either entire or most of body. Pointed prostomium. Body consists of anterior abranchiate setigers, followed by numerous branchiate setigers and posterior abranchiate setigers. Branchiae digitiform, bifid. Eye spots absent. Parapodia poorly developed with capillary noto- and neurosetae. Anterior and posterior setigers with elongated capillary setae. Anterior setigers often inflated; lateral fold developed on at least one anterior segment. Pygidial funnel with numerous marginal papillae.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The generic name is composed by the Ancient Greek noun lobos, meaning 'lobe', and the Ancient Greek noun skhesis or schesis, meaning 'state', 'condition', or 'attitude', and refers to the presence of anterior lateral folds in the members of the genus. [details]
