Type locality Australia, Western Australia. Species described with base on syntypes from four different stations of the ''Hamburguer SW-Australien Expedition 1905'': 1) Stn. 12, Shark Bay, Freycinet Estuary, west the navigation channel, between Baba Head and Cararong (= Cararang) Peninsula (geocoordinates not provided, estimated using map annexed to volume one of the series to be approximately lat. -26.37º, long. 113.6º); 2) Stn. 19, Shark Bay, Useless Inlet, central channel (geocoordinates not provided, estimated using map annexed to volume one of the series to be approximately lat. -26.15º, long. 113.35º); 3) Stn. 23, Shark Bay, entrance of South Passage (geocoordinates not provided, estimated using map annexed to volume one of the series to be approximately lat. -26.169º, long. 113.215º); 4) Fremantle, east coast of Rottnest Island (geocoordinates not provided, estimated using map annexed to volume one of the series to be approximately lat. -32.003º, long. 115.559º).  [details]

Etymology Not stated. The specific epithet oculifera is derived from the Latin noun oculus, meaning 'eye', and the Greek verb phero, meaning 'to bear', and presumably refers to the presence of two pairs of small brown eyes in the posterior region of the prostomium, in rectangular position, of which the posterior pair is smaller and rather difficult to see ("Auf der hinteren Hälfte des Kopflappens stehen in Rechteckstellung 2 Paar kleine braune Augen, von denen die hinteren die kleineren und ziemlich schwer erkennbar sind"; Augener, 1913: 90). The presence of eyes was considered as one of the distinctive characters distinguishing the new species from the close Paramphinome pulchella Sars, 1869, from Norway: "Von Paramphinome ist die typische Art P. pulchella aus Norwegen durch den Besitz der eigentümlichen Hakenborsten am 1. Segment und den Mangel der Augen von meiner australischen Art unterschieden" (Augener, 1913: 91).  [details]
