Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Hutchings & Murray (1984: 97): ''Prostomium and peristomium not expanded or proboscis-shaped. Lateral lobes poorly developed. Twenty three pairs of notosetae, with serrated tips, from segment 4. Neurosetae from setiger 2; uncini arranged in double rows from setiger 7; anterior thoracic uncini with well-crested head, and long, well-chitinised shafts, shaft lost by mid-thoracic segments. Three pairs of branched branchiae on segments 2, 3, 4.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The generic name is composed by the words longi-, the combining form of the Latin adjective longus and meaning 'long' or 'extended', and the New Latin noun of Greek origin carpus, meaning 'wrist' or designating the 'wrist bones', and refers to the long handled uncini present in the anterior thoracic segments. [details]
