Etymology Authors: Amaeana 'ellobophora' "refers to the cocoons found in some individuals, a character which has not been found in any other species examined to date. The epithet comes from “ellobos”, Greek word for “pod”, plus “phoras”, greek word for “bearer”. [details]

Reproduction Nogueira et al. (2015) suggested that the polycirrid Amaeana ellobophora Nogueira, Carrerette & Hutchings, 2015 is a species which broods eggs in attached cocoons. However, Read & Nogueira (2015) subsequently corrected this, instead identifying the pods observed fixed to the anterior of one worm as highly modified parasitic copepods (Arthropoda: Crustacea: Copepoda: Poecilostomatoida), and thus not providing any information on the reproductive mode of Amaeana species. [details]
