Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy The generic subdivision given in Fauchald (1977) differs markedly from the more traditional pattern summarized by Fauchald (1972). Strelzov (1973) introduced several new taxonomic characters to the ones previously in common usage. The presence of prostomial ciliary bands, of prostomial terminal sense organs and the localization of the nuchal organs must now be investigated. Similar characters have been used in other families, and it is anticipated that they will gain acceptance also in the treatment of the paraonids. Several genera, such as Paraonides, Paradoneis and others used in the traditional sub-division of the family, may be invalid.  [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editordescription Body long and slender with lateral parapodia. Prostomium with a single antenna or antennae absent. Branchiae present on a limited number of median setigers in most species. All setae simple, including capillaries and various, usually postbranchial, hooks or otherwise modified setae. [details]
