Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Uchida (1968: 606): ''The body is strongly spiraled. Prostomium has eye spots at the both sides of the peristomium. Tentacles have longitudinal grooves. One pair of bundled branchiae are at the second segment. There are 17 thoracic segments. Notosetae appear from the second segment and neuropodial uncini from the third segment.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. The generic epithet is composed by the combining form of Greek origin spiro-, meaning 'coil' or 'spiral', and the word verma, probably derived from the Latin noun vermis and meaning 'worm', and refers presumably to the body of the type species, described as being ''strongly spiraled'' (Uchida, 1968: 606). [details]
