From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDescription [Information from Torkild Bakken] "The prostomium has two antennae, two palpi and four eyes. Prostomium is subhexagonal, with a broad base; a median longitudinal cleft is present on the anterior half. The peristomium has four pairs of peristomial cirri. The proboscis has fleshy papillae on oral ring; the maxillary ring has white paragnaths. Parapodia are biramous after the first two pairs. Chaetae include both spiniger and falcigers (Paik 1977).
Remarks. P. leucophryna has paragnaths on the maxillary ring and papillae on the oral ring. These features make it worth comparing this taxon with taxa in Leonnates, Paraleonnates and Laevispinereis. A distinguishing feature for P. leucophryna is the white colour of the paragnaths. There is a discrepancy in the generic diagnosis and the species description concerning falciger chaetae. They are said to be present in the generic diagnosis but Paik does not mention them at all in the species description." [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment Bakken & Wilson (2005) state that Periserrula was one of the monotypic genera "for which published descriptions were inadequate and study specimens not available", and was not included for their analysis. [details]
