From editor or global species database
Classification Izuka (1912) placed Coelobranchus in Eunicidae, in which also at the time he included Dorvilleidae genera and other Eunicida. Later the species was recognised as Iphitime doderleinii, and for a time Iphitimidae was a valid family. Iphitime Marenzeller also began in the Eunicida, and is now in Dorvilleidae [details]

Etymology Not stated but named Coelobranchus possibly because the branchiae are hollow with an internal connection to the main body [details]

Synonymy As the genus is monotypic, and the type species is a subjective synonym of Iphitime doderleinii, therefore Coelobranchus must become a junior synonym of Iphitime [details]
