Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The specific epithet lamellifera refers to the leaf-like gill present in the anterior side of th parapodia.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat On and inside sponges. Verrill (1900) stated that probably ocurred in dead corals.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Current taxon was considered to be synonym with Branchiosyllis oculata Ehlers, 1887 by Hartman (1942), but it was later considered to be a valid species by San Martín et al. (2013).  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Atlantic Ocean, Bermuda. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType material The species was described by Verrill (1900) with base on three specimens, being "none perfect". San Martín et al. (2013) studied one specimen deposited at the Peabody Museum of Natural History, Yale University (YPMNH 56864), mounted on a slide with two other species of Syllidae. According to San Martín et al. (2013), "the specimen described by Verrill (1900) (YPMNH 56864) is apparently a juvenile in very poor condition, broken in two pieces, but agrees well with the examined specimens". This way, the specimen would be one of the syntypes of the species.  [details]
