Etymology Not stated by the authors. The name Cirrodoce is composed by the Latin noun cirrus, meaning 'filament', 'tendril' or 'tendril-like appendage', and, apparently, the ending of the name of the type genus of the family Phyllodocidae, Phyllodoce Lamarck, 1818 (a Nereid in Greek mythology). It refers presumably to the shape of the dorsal cirri of the new phyllodocid genus: "Dorsal cirri are cirriform" (Hartman & Fauchald, 1971: 39).  [details]

Etymology Not stated by the authors. The name Cirrodoce is composed by the Latin noun cirrus, meaning 'filament', 'tendril' or 'tendril-like appendage', and, apparently, the ending of the name of the type genus of the family Phyllodocidae, Phyllodoce Lamarck, 1818 (a Nereid in Greek mythology). It refers presumably to the shape of the dorsal cirri of the new phyllodocid genus: "Dorsal cirri are cirriform" (Hartman & Fauchald, 1971: 39).  [details]

Synonymy From Blake (1988: 246): "Cirrodoce cristata was described by Hartman & Fauchald (1971) as a new genus and species which was said to differ from other phyllodocids in having two instead of four frontal antennae and very large eyes. An examination of the holotype has revealed that the distinct scars of four frontal antennae and one medial antenna are present along with scars of four pairs of tentacular cirri. Most of these structures and the dorsal parapodial cirri have been lost. This specimen has been compared carefully with the new specimens from Georges Bank and there is no doubt that they all represent the same species and should be referred to the genus Clavadoce Hartman, 1936." [details]
