Nomenclature Ophelina Savigny is included in several English translations of Cuvier's "Le Règne Animal ...", notably the expanded version published by Whittaker, with Griffith as lead author.

Diagnosis From Maciolek & Blake (2006):
"Body elongate, not divided into distinct regions; with deep ventral groove and two lateral grooves along entire length of body. Prostomium conical, sometimes with terminal palpode; eyes present or absent. Branchiae present or absent; if present, beginning on chaetiger 2, continuing to posterior end, sometimes absent from middle or far posterior chaetigers; branchiae single, cirriform. Segmental lateral eyes absent. Noto- and neuropodia with small fascicles of capillary chaetae; small ventral cirrus present. Pygidium with anal funnel sometimes bearing long unpaired cirrus and additional lateral cirri.[details]

Nomenclature Ophelina Savigny is included in several English translations of Cuvier's "Le Règne Animal ...", notably the expanded version published by Whittaker, with Griffith as lead author. However, this appears to be a coincidental lapsus when the text should have been Ophelia Savigny. A new name was not intended. If so Ophelina appearing in the Griffith volume is not an available name for taxonomy, and the listing in 'Nomenclator Zoologicus' [http://www.ubio.org/NZ/PDF/Vol3/pg0430.pdf] of two apparent Ophelina authorships should not be interpreted as a case of homonymy. [details]
