From editor or global species database
Diagnosis Longipalpa is unique among nerillids by having two extremely long palps on the prostomium and two densely ciliated lobes on the dorsal side of the pygidium. It is further characterized by the combination of the following characters: eight chaetigerous segments between prostomium and pygidium; prostomium with three very short simple dorsal antennae; compound serrated chaetae; single parapodial cirri from segment three to eight; two pygidial lobes; one anterior and one posterior group of non-motile cilia arranged in distinct patterns and a pair of short bands of motile cilia on prostomium; tranverse discontinuous rows of ciliary tufts on dorsal and ventral surface; cuticular plates in pharyngeal apparatus; two pairs of segmented nephridia from segment II-III and III-IV; hermaphroditic reproduction with one pair of spermioducts from segment VI-VII and one pair of oviducts from segment VII-VIII [details]

Etymology authors: "From the Latin longus (=long) + English palp ( =prostomial appendage), in reference to the greater length of these appendages when compared to other genera in the family." [details]
