Note 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Paramarphysa diagnostically lacks branchiae, but the genus name appears not to have been used since 1992. Orensanz (1990: 61) appears to be the first to synonymise Paramarphysa informally with Marphysa by stating "Some genera, based on the reduction or absence of the branchiae, are not included in the key. These are Paramarphysa (abranchiate counterpart of Marphysa), Nicidion (counterpart to Eunice), and Lysibranchia (branchiate counterpart to Lysidice). I do not consider the absence or presence of branchiae (or the number of branchial filaments) as a character of diagnostic value for onuphid or eunicid genera." Much later Zanol et al (2014: 93) produced a formal synonymy for Marphysa which included Paramarphysa as one of the several junior synonyms [details]
