Etymology The genus is named in honour of the French oceanographer and biologist Lucien Laubier (b. 22 September 1936 - d. 15 June 2008), Université de Marseille, Intitut Océanographique de Paris, and Ifremer, ''in recognition of his many careful contributions to polychaete taxonomy, including studies on some of the fauveliopsids here referred to this genus'' (Petersen, 2000: 502-503). Petersen does not state a gender for the genus (see grammatical gender note). Salazar-Vallejo et al (2019) has commented obliquely on the inappropriateness of these combinations taken literally in meaning, which perhaps should be restricted for comparing with existing genera (eg Travisiopsis), not for honouring people, for which their name as a genitive noun is recommended in the Code. [details]

Diagnosis Diagnosis by Petersen (2000: 502): ''Fauveliopsids with body relatively short, linear, of similar width throughout, weakly divided into two regions recognizable by features of segments and chaetae. Epithelium smooth, iridescent, mostly without papillae, or papillae minute and inconspicuous except for a few around anus. Segments weakly defined externally; parapodial lobes absent, chaetae emerging from low welts or directly from body wall. Interramal papillae small, mostly sessile and inconspicuous. Chaetae include weakly curved uni- or bidentate (in small specimens) aciculars, sigmoid aciculars and slender, flattened, smooth, pointed chaetae (capillaries). Last segment well developed, similar in size to preceding ones, bilobed in dorsal and ventral views, often with elongated chaetae and a few papillae. Pygidium usually recessed within last chaetiger. Habitat: Appears to be free living.'' [details]

Etymology The genus is named in honour of the French oceanographer and biologist Lucien Laubier (b. 22 September 1936 - d. 15 June 2008), Université de Marseille, Intitut Océanographique de Paris, and Ifremer, ''in recognition of his many careful contributions to polychaete taxonomy, including studies on some of the fauveliopsids here referred to this genus'' (Petersen, 2000: 502-503). Petersen does not state a gender for the genus (see grammatical gender note). Salazar-Vallejo et al (2019) has commented obliquely on the inappropriateness of these combinations taken literally in meaning, which perhaps should be restricted for comparing with existing genera (eg Travisiopsis), not for honouring people, for which their name as a genitive noun is recommended in the Code. [details]

Grammatical gender The gender of Laubieriopsis is not stated, and it is not possible to tell what gender was intended from the species names Petersen combined with it. Like Fauveliopsis it is a combination of a masculine personal name and a Greek noun 'opsis' meaning loosely 'like' or 'similar' which the Code states should be treated as a feminine noun, but could also be an adjective with gender depending on the noun combined with it. Fauveliopsis is mostly treated as feminine, therefore Laubieriopsis could also be treated as feminine.  [details]
