Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Rediagnosis by Schüller (2008: 55): ''Body long and thin. Ventral groove along whole length of body. Prostomium bluntly rounded to conical with small palpode, peristomium indistinct. Eyes absent. Anterior parapodia button shaped with long, bent chaetae arranged in tufts. Parapodia embedded into lateral groove in median region, becoming more distinct in posterior region. Parapodia with branchiae in third quarter of body. Posterior chaetae longer than median ones, stiff and straight. All chaetae simple. Branchiae flat, wide at base, tapering to top. Posterior end of body laterally flattened with chaetigers reduced in length. Pygidium with or without anal tube. Anal tube, if present, with or without ventral cirrus.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The generic name is composed by the name of the genus Ammotrypane Rathke, 1843 (junior synonym of Ophelina Örsted, 1843), followed by the Latin suffix -ella (masculine: -ellus), which is added to a noun to form a diminuitive of that noun, and refers to the reduced size of the new taxon and its similarity with Ammotrypane: ''A somewhat small form, measuring about ¾ of an inch long, and more slender than a young Ammotrypane aulogaster of the same length, while the contour is different. [...] The succeeding segments are somewhat narrow, as in allied forms (e.g. Ammotrypane)'' (McIntosh, 1878: 505). [details]
