Eupolymnia Verrill, 1900

Eupolymnia Verrill, 1900: 660 ; Hutchings & Glasby 1988: 12 –13; Hutchings 1997 a: 147. Type species. Amphitrite nesidensis Delle Chiaje, 1828 , designated by Hartman (1959).

Diagnosis. Prostomium compact, three pairs of branched branchiae on segments 2–4. Lateral lobes on segments 2–4. Notopodia from segment 4, 17 pairs, with smooth-tipped notochaetae. Neurochaetae as avicular uncini, present from segment 5.

Remarks. A neotype of the type species of the genus, E. nesidensis ( Delle Chiaje, 1828) , should be defined as almost nothing is known for certain about the species and type material is lost. As suggested elsewhere ( Hutchings & Glasby, 1988), we recommend that a revision of the genus should be conducted to clarify possible synonyms.
