Status Parapar et al. (2015) state is excluded from Orbiniella in Buzhinskaja, 1994. Not assigned elsewhere. Likewise Blake (2017) examined the material and stated: "The holotype was well described by Hartman (1967). As a species of Orbiniella, O. branchiata is unusual in the presence of three achaetous peristomial rings, which should serve to readily differentiate the species from other orbiniids. However, given the small size of the holotype, the presence of branchiae, elongate postsetal lobes, and furcate setae, the species most likely represents a juvenile of another species in another genus." [details]
