Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The specific epithet perivisceralis is a Latin adjective meaning 'surrounding the viscera', and refers to the brownish peritoneal coloration of the species. Claparède (1868: 471) refers first to this coloration stating that the specimens ''offrent parmi les Néréides un second exemple de coloration péritonéale'', and later ''Les sept ou huit premiers segments sont complétement déporvus de pigment péritonéal. Dans les segments suivants apparaissent quelques cellules pigmentaires, conformées comme dans l'espèce précédente [Nereis peritonealis], mais toutes de couleur brune. Ces cellules deviennent de plus en plus nombreuses en arrière, et la coloration atteint par conséquent son maximum d'intensité dans la région postérieur du corps. [...] Le ventre est dépourvu de pigment.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Among algae, on hard and detritic substrates, coralligène, on shells of Pinna nobilis, on rocky bottoms with Pentapora fascialis, Udotea and Halimeda tuna, and also in meadows of Posidonia oceanica.
