Description As in Fauchald (1970: 118) "Species in this family have short, rounded or truncate prostomia and two peristomial segments. Parapodia are uniramous and have large postsetal lobes and shorter presetal lobes. Simple falcate and composite falcate setae are present; hoods are absent. Branchiae are always present and may be simple or branched; they are sometimes pectinate. The pharyngeal apparatus has a pair of mandibles which are fused medially over nearly half their length; a pair of maxillary carriers are fused to the simple falcate maxillae I. Maxillae II and III are usually present and may be falcate or have a few teeth each.
The family contains presently one genus, Iphitime Marenzeller (1902), with the genotype Iphitime doederleini, and three additional species [...]. All species are inquilines in the branchial cavities of decapod crustaceans. Iphitimidae resembles Onuphidae, Eunicidae and Lumbrineridae in the presence of a pair of short maxillary carriers. The maxillary carriers in the Iphitimidae are, however, fused to the falcate maxilla I; the maxillary carriers in the other families fuse to each other medially rather than with maxilla I, when they are fused. The Onuphidae. Eunicidae and Iphitimidae have branched branchiae present in some species. The Iphitimidae differs from the three families mentioned in that it has simple falcate setae only and no setae are hooded." [details]

Taxonomy Orensanz (1990: 119) continued Family Iphitimidae of Fauchald (1970), adding new genera Pinniphitime, Palpiphitime, and Mammiphitime, continuing existing genera Eteonopsis, Exallopus, Veneriserva, and in particular included Ophryotrocha Clapar├Ęde & Mecznikow, 1869. However, the iphitimids are not strongly differentiated from the dorvilleids by Orensanz's diagnoses, except for their uniramous parapodia, rather than subbiramous parapodia. Eibye-Jacobsen & Kristensen (1994) found that Dinophilidae and Iphitimidae represent monophyletic and paraphyletic subgroups, respectively, within Dorvilleidae. The family is no longer used. [details]
