Nomenclature Jumars (1974:103) proposed Schistomeringos as a 'nom. nov.' rather than the new genus it is. It appears he did this because Verrill (1900) had wrongly stated Nereis rudolphi delle Chiaje was type genus for Verrill's replacement name Stauronereis for Staurocephalus [=Dorvillea]. However, Stauronereis is an available name only for the concept that was Staurocephalus. When Jumars effectively decided to split off a group of dorvilleids from Dorvillea at genus level, he simply had used Schistomeringos as a new genus name for them. [details]

Classification Schistomeringos has been treated as a Dorvillea subgenus by some experts. It is maintained separately here, pending further determination on whether the group of species with always furcate chaetae in every parapodium of adults is not a natural one, in which case it would preferably be just a synonym of Dorvillea. Wolf (1986) suggested certain morphology of the inferior basal maxilla plate as possibly another common feature. Related genera Ougia and Parougia lack inferior basal maxilla plates. [details]
