Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Hutchings & Murray (1984: 92): ''Compact prostomium. Three pairs of branchiae on segments 2, 3 and 4, each composed of numerous sessile filaments. Lateral lobes absent. Notosetae narrow-winged capillaries with serrated tips; from segment 2, continuing for a variable number of segments. Uncini avicular, with pronounced prow; from setiger 4, continuing to pygidium; arranged in single rows throughout.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Emended diagnosis by Nogueira & Alves (2006: 34): ''Upper lip short and rounded, lower lip restricted to oral area. Basal part of prostomium bearing eyespots. Lobes on anterior segments sometimes present. Three pairs of branchiae formed by numerous simple filaments. Notopodia from segment 2, extending for a variable number of segments. Each notopodium with two rows of chaetae; chaetae on posterior row distinctly longer than chaetae on anterior row. On anterior notopodia, chaetae on both rows as smooth, limbate capillaries; on posterior notopodia, chaetae on anterior row of notochaetae as serrated capillaries, with elongated and thin blades, and chaetae on posterior row of notochaetae as smooth, limbate capillaries. Neuropodia from segment 5 until near pygidium, uncini in single rows throughout. Uncini high (considered as the distance from top of crest to bottom of base) and elongated (considered as the distance from end of heel to end of prow), heel and prow conspicuous, dorsal button away from the anterior margin.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The generic name is composed by the name of the genus Streblosoma M. Sars in G.O. Sars, 1872, preceded by the prefix of Greek origin pseudo-, meaning `false' or 'fake', and refers to the similarity between the two genera. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorGrammatical gender The gender of Pseudostreblosoma is neuter (Hutchings & Murray, 1984: 92). [details]
